How Big a Ripple? The Impact of the Wisconsin Consortium of Research Development. Final Report #2.
Clements, William H.
This report relates the history and describes the impact of the Wisconsin State Universities Consortium of Research Development on each of the 5 member institutions (La Crosse, River Falls, Stevens Point, Stout and Whitewater) and on the state of Wisconsin in general. WSU CORD was federally funded in 1966 to develop interest in and the capacity to carry on research concerned with improving teaching and learning and strengthening instruction at the Wisconsin State Universities. It was decided that a joint research project conducted by the cooperating institutions would be the major focus of the first year's work. The project undertaken was an investigation of the "Diversity of Intellective and Non-Intellective Characteristics between Persisting and Non-Persisting Students Among Campuses." A series of research workshops were also held at each campus to provide the faculty with a basic understanding of educational research. Emphasis during the second year was placed on investigation of a major problem within each institution and "seed money" for individual research projects was granted by the US Office of Education. This report contains summaries of the 46 projects undertaken by faculty members. (JS)
