Encouraging Innovation in Undergraduate Neuroscience Education by Supporting Student Research and Faculty Development

Jean C. Hardwick,* Michael Kerchner,† Barbara Lom,corresponding author‡ Julio J. Ramirez,§ and Eric P. Wiertelak‖

The organization Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN; www.funfaculty.org) was established in 1991 by a group of neuroscientists dedicated to innovation and excellence in undergraduate neuroscience education and research (Ramirez and Normansell, 2003 blue right-pointing triangle). The founders experienced a need for a community of neuroscience educators because no formal division existed within the Society for Neuroscience (SfN; www.sfn.org) to support undergraduates or the faculty who focus on undergraduate neuroscience education.
