Several Farmer School faculty members have been awarded a special distinction to assist them in their research efforts by being named inaugural Faculty Research Fellows.
The recipients are:

- Fadel Megahed, Endres Associate Professor Fellow & associate professor of information systems and analytics

The designation of Research Faculty Fellow was created to recognize associate and full professors who have outstanding research records and whose scholarship has an impact on the world-class reputation that the school enjoys for producing scholarly output of a very high caliber.
Each Research Faculty Fellow receives one course release a year for two years to give them more time to continue their record of innovative research resulting in publications in high-quality journals.
Miami University prides itself for adopting the teacher-scholar model. One of the hallmarks of this model is that the Farmer School has many research active faculty teaching our students. There are multiple benefits to this approach. Not only do students get exposed to ideas that are at the forefront of knowledge but they are also taught by faculty who are trained to think critically and use data-driven approaches to solve problems. Many of the Farmer School’s undergraduate students publish research with faculty.
