Faculty Recognition

Faculty mentors play an integral role in the Undergraduate Research and Inquiry experience. This mentorship allows for the growth and development of young researchers to become successful in their respective areas.  In order to recognize the efforts of the amazing faculty who expand the undergraduate research initiative OURI hosts an annual "Faculty Recognition Event" early spring to celebrate their contributions. 

Professional Development  

Faculty Learning Communities

Faculty interested in learning more about integrating research and inquiry into the curriculum are encouraged to apply to one of our Distinction through Discovery supported faculty learning communities.

Freshman Learning Community Initiative 

Faculty and staff teaching in the Freshman Learning Communities and Living Learning Communities program are encouraged to integrate research and inquiry components through the common SLS 1502 course. For further information please contact us.

Obtain a FREE membership to the Council of Undergraduate Research (CUR) by logging into myfau.fau.edu.  Click on the "Faculty" or "Staff" tab (based on your status), and follow the instructions to apply for membership.

Increase The Awareness

Encourage your students to participate in the following:

Submit your Undergraduate Students' Success

OURI wants to hear about your successes!  Has your student published an original work?  Have they presented at a conference, symposium, or exhibition?  Send OURI the students name and contact information, a few sentences about the success, faculty mentor name and contact, as well as a picture of the student.  Successes are included in the weekly announcements. 

Submit An Undergraduate Research Opportunity 

Each week OURI sends out an announcement to the mailing list with upcoming opportunities such as ways for undergraduates to get funded, attend presentations, conferences and workshops, events, and much more.  Faculty interested in submitting an undergraduate research opportunity, please email requests to ouri@fau.edu and include the following information:

  • Name and email of faculty mentor 
  • Name and email of graduate student (if appropriate) 
  • Project title 
  • Project description (2-3 line description of what the student will be doing) 
  • Start date and anticipated end date of project

  • Deadline for applicants 
  • Application details: what you want from the student, e.g. CV, research experience, etc. 
  • web link or flyer with additional information (if available)

Please note: undergraduate students engaged in research projects may require additional research compliance training and certification.  For further information please visit the Division of Research website.  Additional research compliance information can be found here.
