05/05/2017 IAS faculty member Ben Gardner has received a UW Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. Each year, students who are presenting their work at the Undergraduate Research Symposium are invited to nominate their mentor for special recognition. This year there were 159 nominations. Gardner was one of the five selected from this pool. Dean and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Ed Taylor, will recognize the awardees at the opening of the symposium. UW President Ana Mari Cauce will also speak at the welcome ceremony. This year more than 1,200 undergraduates will present their research in concurrent poster and oral sessions. Congratulations Ben!
