URFAC is a faculty led initiative to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity at Cal Poly Pomona. The goal of the committee is to develop and support an active undergraduate research community across all academic disciplines on campus.

URFAC includes two faculty representatives from each of the eight colleges at Cal Poly Pomona, as well as the Director of OUR-CPP and the Associate Vice President for Research. This committee directs OUR-CPP and undergraduate research events on campus such as the annual Student Research Conference held the first Friday in March.
