12 Opportunities, challenges, questions Conversations around IP, publication, open access Archiving original data How many students are actively using previously archived work? How do students decide whether or not to make their work available? What do this original student research become for the Archives in the long run? What is the value of archiving original student research?

13 As a student who came to college from a city public school, it was my own undergraduate research experience with Ethnography of the University Initiative that led me to graduate school. - Teresa Ramos EUI gives both students and faculty a better understanding of each other. It provides students a glimpse of what it is like to conduct research, but it also allows professors to understand what their students truly are interested in and how they are as. - Andrew Hernann To allow students' work and research to be archived for future use is a powerful tool for the University. –Jennifer Duffy, Caroline Schreiber, Matt Dixon That project, to this day, remains the most interesting research project that I have ever engaged in. –Andrew Roback
