The Chancellor’s Distinguished Undergraduate Research and Creative Practice Mentor Award honors the contribution of faculty who mentor undergraduate students in research and creative practice who exemplify the University of Washington Bothell’s commitment to undergraduate education and hold the student-faculty relationship to be paramount.
The awards recognize excellence in supporting undergraduate scholars, encourage mentoring relationships with undergraduate students, and convey the campus' high regard for these contributions made by our faculty.

Award winners will be asked to serve as a resource for other faculty and the campus community.
