For Faculty

Faculty Recommendation Form Changes

The Office of Student Research has fully transitioned to InfoReady for the administration of all OSR Travel and Research grant applications.

Once a student submits a grant application through the InfoReady Internal Competition application portal their Faculty Mentor will be prompted to submit a corresponding letter of recommendation. Faculty cannot submit a letter of recommendation before the student applies - they must upload the letter through the InfoReady link sent by the applying student. 

The previous OSR Faculty Recommendation form has been disabled and is no longer used for OSR Travel and Research grant applications.

We encourage Faculty members to thoroughly discuss this opportunity with the intended undergraduate student and confirm their ability to fulfill the requirements of the position (80 hours of work for the semester.) The selected URA student must be able to commit to the time and workload involved with the proposed research project.

URAs offer highly motivated undergraduate students the opportunity to work closely with a Faculty mentor on the Faculty member's research, scholarship, or creative activity. The Faculty member, in consultation with an interested undergraduate student at Appalachian State University, is encouraged to apply.

Student Travel Request Form from the Dean of Student's Office

Information to the Dean of Student's Office is needed for travel outside Boone. The information is for emergency contact only.

Faculty and staff taking students on field trips or other excursions need to provide to the Dean of Students a list of student participants BEFORE the class trip. This list is solely for informational purposes, enabling the University to determine the identities of participants in case of emergency. Providing such a list does NOT trigger insurance coverage of any kind.
