Undergraduate Research Faculty Advisory Committee (URFAC)

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, Innovation, and Economic Development. This committee directs OUR-CPP and undergraduate research events on campus such as the annual Student RSCA Conference held the first week in March.
