Overview: Building and strengthening undergraduate research programs requires a number of resources. A primary resource and key building block for these programs is faculty time. Given the range of other academic demands on faculty, strategic rethinking and rebalancing workload becomes an essential element in the expansion of opportunities for students. The diversity of college and university types demands a range of options for rethinking faculty load in the context of undergraduate research.
