What is the Faculty Research Experience and Expertise system (FREE)?

FREE is a searchable electronic database that includes research experience and expertise of faculty at CSULB. The purpose of FREE is to foster research collaborations and partnerships:

...

  • Faculty changes to Title will undergo a review and approval process. The designated college approver will be responsible for reviewing the request and approving or denying the change. An email message will be sent to the college designee with an alert of the Title change request. Once the college designee reviews and approves or denies the request, the requestor will receive an email alert including the decision status. 
  • Faculty webpages are automatically indexed and searchable through the Keyword Search upon profile update. However, changes to faculty webpages after inclusion in the FREE faculty profile will not be reflected immediately -- faculty webpages will be re-indexed twice a year (summer and winter).
