Forensic Institute for Research and Education (FIRE)

This year, FIRE's primary focus during the TrueBlue Give Campaign is to raise support for travel scholarships for our Forensic Anthropology Search and Recovery (FASR) Team. These funds will allow students to participate in our Educational Study Abroad Program with Dr. Tiffany Saul and to attend international/national conferences such as the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Annual Scientific Meeting. If you would like to help us achieve our fundraising goals for these student travel scholarships, please designate your TrueBlue gift to FIRE by typing "the Forensic Institute for Research and Education" in the designation box of the online donation form.
The mission of the Forensic Institute for Research and Education (FIRE) is to advance forensic science through education, research, and community service in collaboration with faculty, students, and community partners. FIRE does this through a variety of initiatives. FIRE provides training to law enforcement, death investigators, arson investigators, and other forensic professionals across the state. First and foremost is our work with the FASR Team. This hand-selected student team assists law enforcement and the medical examiner's office with the recovery and analysis of skeletal remains. FASR team members are provided with hands-on, real-life experiences with crime scenes and skeletal casework unlike that available to undergraduate students from any other university in the country. Besides numerous K-12 school visits, FIRE conducts its annual CSI:MTSU forensic summer youth camp. This allows students in 9th - 12th grades to explore unique career possibilities in forensic science while they develop critical thinking and teamwork skills. Every spring and fall, FIRE hosts the William M. Bass Legends in Forensic Science lectureship, which brings in internationally-recognized forensic science experts to discuss a variety of topics and cases.
Every amount helps so please consider making your tax-deductible gift today. Remember to designate to The Forensic Institute for Research and Education (FIRE) by typing "the Forensic Institute for Research and Education" in the designation box on the online donation form.

On behalf of FIRE, we sincerely thank you for your generous donation.
