Faculty liaisons

OUR liaisons are faculty members within departments or programs who are interested and involved in undergraduate research, scholarly work, and/or creative activities. They facilitate communication between the OUR and the faculty and students in their department or program. 


  • Inform faculty and students in their departments and programs about deadlines, events, services, and programs offered by the OUR, including end-of-quarter poster sessions, research and travel grants for students, SOURCE, and mentoring;
  • Give feedback to the OUR from their faculty colleagues about the OUR programs and ways to better support their department or program;
  • Work with the OUR to develop strategies to reach out to faculty and students within their department or program;
  • Serve as a resource for undergraduate research, scholarly work, and creative activities within their department or program with the support of the OUR as needed.

The responsibility of appointing a liaison and the process for doing so lies within each department or program. If you are interested in becoming a liaison, talk to your chair or program director.
