Summer SURF Information for Faculty

Purpose: To create meaningful research and professional development opportunities for students working on faculty-centered, faculty-mentored research projects.

  • Faculty benefit from research assistance and the ability to focus on their research agenda;
  • Students benefit from the ability to focus for ten weeks on engaging in meaningful research.

Faculty meet every three weeks during the spring (four meetings total), and every other week during the Summer. The overall focus of the SURF Faculty Fellows Learning Community is thinking about creating the Summer research experience for students and developing the means for embedding meaningful research opportunities in their program curriculum.

Eligibility: All faculty (tenure-track, full-time lecturers and part-time lecturers)

Number: Up to 10 SURF Faculty Fellows will participate.

Stipend: $6500
