CLEW contest winners enjoy free iPads

Leo Oriet, a faculty member in Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering, and Ashley Chartier, a fourth-year student in Family & Social Relations and Psychology, each won an iPad from the University Bookstore for their participation in the campus-wide CLEW survey.

More than 1500 faculty, staff, and students participated in the study as part of an assessment of the University’s learning management system. Principal investigator Lorie Stolarchuk was overwhelmed with the number of responses received from the survey.
