New Director of Undergraduate Research

I am pleased to announce that Joyce Fernandes (Professor, BIO) is the new director of the ORU. Joyce brings a wealth of experience involving undergraduates in her own research and developing programming at Miami, often targeted at underrepresented students. She also has been very active with the NSF and CUR which should serve her well in this new role. Please join Jim Oris and me in welcoming Joyce and wishing her the best–although it will be tough to compare to the previous director 😉
