The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is pleased to announce the recipients of this year's Outstanding Mentor Awards, which recognize CU Boulder faculty for their role mentoring undergraduate research and creative projects. These exemplary mentors were selected from numerous student nominations speaking to the transformative value of mentorship.
UROP celebrates the impact they make at the intersection of scholarship and teaching. We know that what happens in partnership with mentors is transformative and empowering—and well-documented as a high-impact practice. We are encouraged by the continued resiliency of our academic and creative community and sincerely appreciate their agility in moving projects forward despite mounting challenges. In partnership with mentors, undergraduates are moving the university’s research mission forward and continue to provide real-time solutions to local, national and global challenges while driving innovations to further the public good.
