Faculty form council for undergraduate research

Twelve faculty from seven WSU colleges have formed the school’s first Undergraduate Research Faculty Council.

“We are counting on the members to help us define ‘What is research?’ in terms of the undergraduate experience,” said David Bahr, director of Undergraduate Research, a core unit formed in fall 2006 in the Office of Undergraduate Education.

Bahr, an associate professor in the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA), chairs the group. Council members include: Wendy Brown, College of Veterinary Medicine; Lori Carris, College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS); Andrew Duff, College of Liberal Arts (CLA); Kip Findley, CEA; Tim Freson, College of Education; Andrew Jorgenson, CLA; Brian Lamb, CEA; Laura Corley Lavine, CAHNRS; John McNamara, CAHNRS; Mark Nelson, CAHNRS; Mike Skinner, College of Sciences; and David Whidbee, College of Business.

Faculty members interested in the council are invited to contact Bahr at dbahr@wsu.edu or 335-8523.
