University Senate Committee on Faculty Research programs

The Committee on Faculty Research (CFR) is an appointed committee of University Senate charged with supporting and encouraging the development of externally funded research at Miami University. CFR interprets research as creative endeavors that seek to add to the sum of human knowledge, and CFR supports a wide range of professional activities, recognizing that research varies from discipline to discipline.

A major source of funds for support of CFR research support programs is the indirect costs recovered by the University on grants from external sources. CFR encourages investigators to aid the committee, and the University generally, by securing funds from such sources. In considering proposals for its research support programs, CFR takes into account whether the investigator has previously sought outside funding. Help in seeking external funding for research is available from OARS.

CFR sponsors the following programs:
