About REUF

Research Experiences for Undergraduate Faculty (REUF) encourages and supports involvement in research with undergraduates by faculty at colleges and universities that emphasize undergraduate education. Each annual cycle includes a week-long REUF workshop during the summer and additional activities for participants afterwards to support continuation of research engagement sparked by the workshop.  In addition, participants become members of the long-term REUF community. The REUF program actively recruits faculty from colleges and universities that serve large numbers of underrepresented minority students, students with disabilities, and/or first generation college students, as well as faculty who are members of underrepresented minorities.

The goals of REUF are:

  • To provide faculty participants with a research experience investigating open questions in the mathematical sciences
  • To equip participants to engage in research with undergraduate students at their home institutions
  • To foster long-term research collaborations among some of the faculty participants
  • To establish a network of faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions together with faculty at
    research universities who support collaboration and undergraduate research

REUF is a program of the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) and the Institute for Computational and Experimental Mathematics (ICERM), made possible by the support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through DMS 1239280.
