EUI, the Ethnography of the University Initiative (, is an innovative program at the University of Illinois that offers students the opportunity to conduct original ethnographic and archival research and archive it for future students to build upon. EUI supports faculty in their efforts to bring the research discovery process into the classroom and works with IDEALS, the University's institutional repository, which maintains a permanent online archive of student research. In this session we'll describe EUI and discuss the roles of participants, give examples of student learning and research enabled by EUI, and reflect on what we've learned from the initiative.
