The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will be presenting Mitchell Malachowski, PhD, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the 2014 CUR Fellows Award at the CUR Conference in June 2014 in Washington, D.C. This award is presented to CUR members who have developed nationally respected research programs involving undergraduate students.
As a CUR Fellow, Dr. Malachowski is also awarded a CUR Student Research Fellowship to give to a deserving undergraduate at USD. CUR Fellows Award recipients have established outstanding records of obtaining funding for their collaborative research with their students, and have published research findings with undergraduate co-authors. They reach out to students of all backgrounds, incorporate research activities into the courses they teach, and lead efforts to institutionalize research on their campuses and across the nation. They are leaders and role models for countless faculty and students.
