Miami's Office of Research for Undergraduates sponsors the First Year Research Experience (FYRE) Program. FYRE aims to jumpstart student involvement in research and inquiry at the very start of their college experience. Since 2009, the program has engaged over 600 students in establishing meaningful relationships with Miami faculty, graduate students, and their peers outside of the traditional classroom setting.
All incoming first-year students in STEMM Scholars are required to live in the STEMM Scholars FYRE LLC. This community (LLC) provides students with opportunities to explore and engage in undergraduate research experiences, learn about resources on campus related to undergraduate research, and participate in team-based exploratory projects under the guidance of research-active faculty. Students will also participate in activities in the residence hall that complement the STEMM Scholars overall program to assist with their transition to college and enhance academic success. Students in STEMM Scholars may request non-STEMM Scholars as roommates in the STEMM Scholars FYRE LLC.
The 2023-24 FYRE LLC will be restricted to the STEMM Scholars Program, College of Arts and Science, participants only, and will focus on science, technology, equity in public health, and medicine (and health pre-professionals).
UNV 171 (fall semester) and UNV 172 (spring semester).
The FYRE experience prepares students early on for subsequent research opportunities such as summer research positions across the nation and independent research supervised by Miami faculty.
