Associate professor of biology and co-director of the Westminster College Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research, Dr. Karen K. Resendes, was recently elected Vice Chair/Chair Elect for the Biology Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).
CUR is a national organization whose mission is “to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.”
Resendes was first elected as a CUR councilor in 2012 and re-elected in 2015. During her tenure with the Biology Division, she has spent four years as division secretary and co-chaired the Biology Division Student Travel Awards Committee for the past two years.
“I'm honored to represent Westminster College at this national level and to use my enhanced involvement in CUR to help the college further strengthen our undergraduate research initiatives,” said Resendes.
In July of 2017, Resendes will transition from Vice Chair to Chair of the Biology Division, which also places her on the Executive Board of CUR for a three-year term.
