A foil-wrapped Hershey's kiss sits in the spotlight on a dark woodgrain table. The "flag" sticking out of the wrapper reads "Congratulations." There are empty, crumpled-up Hershey's Kiss wrappers scattered around the still-wrapped Kiss.

CFR Faculty Research Grant recipients announced

Two hands clasping each other, as though shaking in greeting, are reverse embossed on a rusty metal surface. The metal surface is painted a green-blue that seems to be wearing off in places, where the rust is taking over. The hands are encircled by a raised metal ring that has metal rivets at the 12-, 3-, 6-, and 9-o'clock positions.

The University Senate Committee on Faculty Research (CFR) Faculty Research Grants Program awards three types of funding — summer research appointments, research graduate assistantships, and grants to promote research.
