Faculty Assessment of Undergraduate Research at UC Irvine was conducted through a Web-based survey in Winter Quarter of 2002. The survey was sent to 968 active members of the Academic Senate (excluding emeriti), plus 50 additional faculty mentors who have mentored a UROP or SURP-supported undergraduate research project but who are not members of the Academic Senate. It was designed to capture faculty’s perceptions about the undergraduate research experience at UC Irvine in terms of the potential benefits of undergraduate research for both students and faculty, barriers to mentoring, and the amount of faculty time and effort involved in mentoring undergraduate research projects. This survey was administered by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), and was approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) under protocol #2002-2250.
