There are a variety of UX-focused initiatives happening on campus, including pilots and 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.

One of the biggest challenges to UX research is recruiting participants for studies. To aid in this, the library created a participant pool in 2020. Help us build the pool by sharing this link with your friends and colleagues! If you have any questions, contact Rebecca Blakiston.
