Faculty Affiliates

The Faculty Affiliates are the heart of the Center for Undergraduate Research. They are faculty who have expressed a desire to serve as mentors to undergraduates conducting independent research and creative activity, and currently nearly 150 professors at both USM campuses have affiliated with CUR.
