Extending HIP Quality & Equity Follow-on Project
Lumina Foundation
The Center for Postsecondary Research (CPR) continues its program of sponsored research to assess quality and equity in high-impact practices (HIPs), experiences that confer unique educational benefits such as learning communities, service-learning, and undergraduate research among others. CPR is concluding work on a Lumina Foundation grant to investigate (1) the extent to which HIP experiences incorporate elements theorized to account for their educational benefits and (2) the extent of equitable access to high-quality HIPs. Integrated with the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the current grant supported the collection of the most comprehensive data yet on HIP implementation and equity. Promising early findings have led to a second Lumina grant that will deepen the investigation by collecting even more contextualized data through purpose-built surveys keyed to specific HIP experiences. Investigation of the equity dimension remains a central focus, and the new grant will include qualitative research into the experiences of racially minoritized students in HIPs. In this way, CPR continues its leadership role in promoting evidence-informed improvement of educational practice in support of equity and student success.
AERA Virtual Research Learning Series
How to Write About Qualitative Research
August 6
This interactive course aims to help beginning qualitative researchers—whether they are graduate students writing a qualitative dissertation or those learning qualitative methods so they can do mixed methods research—learn some of the key expectations, practices, and conventions of writing traditional qualitative research. The course focuses on writing, perhaps the least discussed topic in qualitative methods texts and courses. Participants will learn about, discuss, and practice the following key qualitative writing skills: Writing to Show You Were There; Writing About and With Qualitative Data; Writing Valid Qualitative Findings, Assertions, and Conclusions; Writing About Qualitative Methods; and Basic Revision Strategies.

Racial Justice Research Fund
Jointly supported by the Vice President for Research and the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, the fund will:
  1. Support 25 grants providing start-up funding of up to $15,000 per grant for research by IU faculty focused on racial equity and justice;
  2. Connect funded researchers with the university’s Foundation Relations, Business Partnerships, and Research Development teams to help the investigators secure external funding for race-related research; and
  3. Host an on-going Racial Justice Research Workshop series to connect researchers working on racial equity and justice issues and to engage other members of the university community.
Funding will be available to IU faculty without regard for field or discipline in an effort to address critical racial equity and justice issues as broadly as possible. For example, the fund could help support research on understanding racial injustice in specific fields, industries, or parts of society; on evaluating programs to address racial injustice in specific settings; or on sparking more investment in (or use of) black-owned businesses.

The research must be innovative, new or reflect a new application of existing research, and, if successful, likely to contribute to racial justice. Research should generally address domestic racial equity and justice issues. While research about racial issues in the arts is welcome, this fund is not intended to support artistic expression itself.

All IU faculty (whether or not tenure-track) on all IU campuses are welcome to apply.

Applications may be submitted using IU's internal funding portal. They will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
