Professor Santagata receives 2020-21 Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research Mentorship
“Dr. Santagata has been an incredibly supportive faculty mentor for the research assistants at our lab,” said doctoral candidate Jiwon Lee, one of Santagata’s advisees. “Her vision of equitable learning is always enacted in the way she creates multi-varied learning opportunities and experiences for research assistants to become researchers who think deeply and critically. All of our undergraduate research assistants have successfully been funded through two UROP projects this year, and two of them have been accepted to Ph.D. programs for this coming fall.”
Santagata’s award was announced during UROP’s 28th annual symposium – Discovering New Paths - on May 21.
