The UWEXP study is an expensive study to run. Our funders have been crucial to our success. Currently, the study is funded by internally by the College of Engineering (including the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering), Population Health Initiative, and Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute. In addition, we have funding from the National Science Foundation; Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology; and Google.
Overview of Findings
UW EXP is analyzing data from 2018 to understand who reports discrimination and how micro-climates in the College of Engineering may correlate with lower stress and depression.
UW EXP is publishing our findings on how physical activity and sleep duration change when students report events of unfair treatment.
A Tech-Forward Approach
UW EXP uses data from surveys, phones, Fitbits, and more to capture a comprehensive understanding of the UW student experience.
