WKURF.org: A Digital Platform to promote research
The RF Board believes that a significant opportunity exists to impact the advancement of faculty and student research/scholarly initiatives through the creation of an interactive Digital Platform that shares the products of intellectual activity with the widest audience. Thus, wkurf.org was built as a cross-campus digital research presence that focuses on advancing initiatives as well as research and scholarly outcomes and their impacts.
