UWM is one of only two national recipients of the 2018 Campus-Wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishments. Given by the Council for Undergraduate Research, the award recognizes the quality and depth of research opportunities provided to undergraduate students. More than 1,000 UWM undergrads are involved in research projects each year, and many receive funding through grants and awards. Here are some examples of their work.

Noah Wolfe, Junior

Noah Wolfe is involved with the School of Education’s Cognitive Research Group. Working alongside Chris Lawson, a developmental psychologist and educational psychology associate professor, Wolfe administers a fun flash card-based test to kids ages 3 to 8. The tests are designed to be brief, pleasant and insightful, providing a window into how children learn information in one context and then apply that knowledge to new questions in a different context.
