The purpose of this thesis was to determine if the current Pacific University College of Optometry student research program (thesis project) was meeting its faculty-set goals. A 13-question survey was designed and mailed to 322 practitioners from four different graduating classes of Pacific University College of Optometry. From the 161 completed and returned surveys, the results were tabulated and compared to the above mentioned goals. Of the six goals, one goal is being met, two goals are not, and two goals showed a split opinion on whether it was being achieved or not. One goal was not addressed in this paper.
