The Cornell Undergraduate Information Competency Initiative, funded by a grant from Cornell University Library and the office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, encourages Cornell faculty to explore creative and effective ways to engage students by integrating
research skills into the classroom and the curriculum through the redesign and creation of assignments for undergraduate courses. This Initiative supports the university's goal of improving undergraduate education by providing faculty the funding, opportunity, and the assistance of campus academic partners to transform the curriculum by creating authentic and engaging research assignments to incorporate into their courses.

The Initiative, based on a model pioneered by the University of California Berkeley's Mellon Library/Faculty Fellowship for Undergraduate Research, was created as a response to a growing national concern that todays undergraduates do not possess core information competencies.
