Integrative Graduate Education, Research and Training (IGERT) Program Evaluation (NSF)
The NSF’s IGERT program is designed to develop university-based programs for graduate education and training that integrate collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. The Landscape, Ecological and Anthropogenic Processes (LEAP) IGERT Program at UIC was a multidisciplinary program that focuses on understanding ecological processes in human-altered landscapes. The program provided fellowships to Ph.D. candidates over a five-year period and supported a new curriculum and internship training for students. The STE Lab conducted a three-year longitudinal evaluation for the LEAP IGERT Program that specifically examined interdisciplinary collaborative and learning outcomes.
