NSF Grant 2020

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) researchers with expertise in fields ranging from psychology to architectural engineering will use a $199,999 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study how the novel COVID 19 global pandemic is affecting stress in college students and their ability to learn in remote settings.

This project will examine the immediate and long-term impacts of the pandemic on undergraduate students? emotional well-being, day-to-day functioning, and learning. The study aims to provide insights on how disruptions can affect learners? stress, engagement, and learning outcomes both during the online learning experience and during the return to learning conditions that are similar to those prior to the disruption. Results from this project will help inform higher-education institutions and policymakers as they develop strategies to mitigate the effects on student learning resulting from the current pandemic and to plan responses for future disruptions.
