About URCC

The Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Curriculum Committee (URCC) is a committee within the Division of Academic Affairs. Its primary function is to support and promote the development of research and inquiry enriched courses and programs at the undergraduate level. As a subcommittee of the University Undergraduate Program Committee (UUPC), the URCC will advise the UUPC on curricular matters related to undergraduate research and inquiry education at Florida Atlantic University, including whether courses proposed for research and inquiry designation meet appropriate institutional standards.

Please consult your College Liaison for assistance in preparing RI designation materials.
