For Faculty

Faculty Mentor Awards

The Undergraduate Research Mentor Award recognizes individuals who make significant contributions to forwarding undergraduate research, creative scholarship, and entrepreneurial scholarship. It recognizes demonstrated excellence in supporting undergraduate researchers, encouraging mentoring relationships with undergraduate students, and conveying the campus' high regard for contributions made by the academic and research community at UNC-Pembroke, particularly if a mentor supports and influences students’ educational and career paths. Exemplary mentors can demonstrate continued success in helping students produce tangible results that may include peer-reviewed publications; student presentations, awards, or scholarships. Excellent undergraduate mentors support students through their availability, attentiveness, encouragement, and understanding. In many disciplines, this mentoring is done by faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. The award recipient is recognized annually at the PURCC Symposium and the Faculty Awards Dinner.
