Research Advisory Council

The Research Advisory Council (RAC) provides an opportunity for research-oriented faculty members at UFV to come together to discuss issues related to research, to identify emerging issues and concerns, and to develop new research‐based initiatives. The RAC provides advice and support to the AVP Research, Engagement, & Graduate Studies and other UFV decision‐making bodies such as the Senate Standing Committee for Research.
