INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS:

Undergraduate Research Experiences

Institutional Effectiveness (IE) developed an Undergraduate Research Experiences (UREs) model, which encourages students to complete paid 8-week individualized student research projects.

UREs were initially offered to students enrolled in the Tampa Bay Bridge to the Baccalaureate (TB-B2B) Grant Program, which provides resources and support to St. Petersburg College (SPC) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) students as they work to achieve their 4-year STEM degree.

STEM research projects completed by TB-B2B students and their respective faculty mentors, are included in the 2018-19, and 2019-20 annual reports:

Beginning in Spring 2021, IE expanded the URE model collegewide to provide paid opportunities for students pursuing STEM and non-STEM degrees, to complete UREs facilitated by faculty.

ASSESSMENTS

IE is responsible for ensuring the quality and value of academic programs, student support services, and administrative units, collaborating with the provost, deans, faculty, and administrators to identify and conduct assessments in various areas.
