The Honors and Undergraduate Research Advisory Committee (HURAC) is a reporting committee of the TAMU Faculty Senate.
The committee was first established as the Honors Program Advisory Committee (HPAC) and was modified in 2010 to reflect the incorporation of Honors and Undergraduate Research into the same office.
HURAC typically meets once each semester and provides advice on standards and policies related to Honors and Undergraduate Research programs at the University. HURAC also serves as a resource and advice/support group to Honors and Undergraduate Research on the concerns of the University community regarding related issues including graduation distinctions, Honors Courses, honors sequences, and recognition of achievements in honors. The committee membership represents the University perspective by including faculty from all colleges.
HURAC is tasked with communicating its recommendations to the Faculty Senate on policies and procedures dealing with Honors and Undergraduate Research at Texas A&M University by way of the Faculty Senate Executive Committee and simultaneously to the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies.
