Faculty Research Initiative

The Faculty Research Initiative (FRI) is intended to encourage and facilitate faculty scholarship/research/creative activity. FRI proposals are reviewed in a competitive process by the University Research Committee and successful proposals receive $2,000 funding through the Office of Academic Affairs. The intent of this competitive program is to foster and reward scholarship/research/creative activities among DSU’s faculty. Funding priority will be given to new faculty and to faculty who need assistance establishing a research agenda. In particular, funding priority will be given to tenure-track, assistant, and associate professors who are in their first two years of service to DSU.
