The National Institutes of Health-funded BUILDing SCHOLARS Center and The University of Texas at El Paso colleges of Engineering, Health Sciences, Liberal Arts and Science are proud to announce the inaugural recipients of the Mentoring Awards program, which recognizes four full-time faculty for their work with students in research.
The awardees include Raymond C. Rumpf, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; Christina Sobin, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Public Health Sciences; Maria Cristina Morales, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology; and Elizabeth Walsh, Ph.D., professor, Department of Biological Sciences.
Recipients were selected through a highly competitive application review process and will receive a $1,000 award.
The goal of the Mentoring Awards program is to foster a campuswide culture of commitment to mentoring students, particularly through engagement in mentored research, scholarly or creative activities. In the future, the Mentoring Awards program will be run on an annual basis in order to enrich the culture of mentoring at UTEP to the benefit of faculty and students.
