In the 2016-17 academic year, ODURC Faculty Research Seed Funds provided up to $7,000 each to support resilience-related projects aligned with a faculty member or collaborative team's research agenda. The purpose of the program is to nurture research and future scholarly efforts and raise the visibility of the ODURC. Five projects were selected and representatives of these projects will present their preliminary results in 10-minute talks.
