Undergraduate Research: Three Institutions' Success Stories. Research Corporation Annual Report, 1999.
Research Corp., Tucson, AZ.
This annual report describes the 1999 activities of Research Corporation, a foundation that supports research programs at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. It focuses on three primarily undergraduate institutions, two private and one public, that are active producers of published research and students going into the sciences. These schools are: (1) Hendrix College, Conway, Arkansas; (2) California State University, Fullerton, California; and (3) Occidental College, Los Angeles, California. Interviews at these three colleges showed how their faculties have successfully integrated research into their science departments in spite of limited resources. At all three institutions, a change occurred from an almost exclusive emphasis on teaching to an emphasis on research with teaching. The report also presents information about other activities of Research Corporation through its various awards programs. Grants approved during fiscal year 1999 are listed by program and institution, and financial statements for the foundation are included. (SLD)
