Babson Faculty Research Fund Programs

Throughout the academic year, the BFRF sponsors programs to support its mission.

  • The Research Chats feature faculty members who have completed research projects. The Chats offer a venue for faculty to share their research activities, serve as a forum for the exchange of research ideas, and, in general, promote research within the Babson community.
  • Other programs feature speakers addressing research related topics and other topics of interest to the Babson community.
