The UofM VIP program investigates how participating in VIP research experiences affects academic outcomes and attitudes and beliefs about engineering using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods. Specifically, we are interested in how students’ grades and retention in engineering, as well as their sense of STEM identity, self-efficacy, and mindsets, are impacted by VIP program participation. We will use our data to contribute to research in STEM/engineering education and to evaluate and improve program effectiveness.
