Initiatives

There are a variety of UX-focused initiatives happening on campus, including pilots, experiments, or projects in the early stages of development. Get in touch with us if you want your UX initiative posted here or if you'd like to get involved with any of these efforts.

UXers from across campus are offering drop-in hours. If you are a student, staff, or faculty member, come by and learn more about UX or get advice on a UX problem or project. It's free!

UX participant pool

One of the biggest challenges to UX research is recruiting participants for studies. To aid in this, the library is working on creating a participant pool. Help us build the pool by sharing this link with your friends and colleagues! If you have any questions, contact Rebecca Blakiston or Lara Miller.

Course: UX Research

Poster for ENGL430 class

ENGL430: User Experience (UX) Research is being offered again in spring 2021. Contact Ann Shivers-McNair.

This is one of the core courses in the new Professional and Technical Writing major.

The User Experience Initiative (UXI)

A UX team is gathered around a table covered in sticky notes, and they are organizing them by categories.

A group of us meet biweekly to discuss various initiatives and UX goings-on across campus. If you're interested in meeting up with us to share your idea or hear what's happening, get in touch with Rebecca Blakiston.
