Dr. Robert Agunga was recognized as a Distinguished Undergraduate Research mentor (DURM) by the Undergraduate Research Office. He is a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education and Leadership.
This award, founded in 2007, is to recognize the clinical and research faculty, lecturers, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students who also contribute extraordinary guidance to the undergraduate students who work with them.
To win this award, mentors must be nominated by undergraduates participating in the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum, and must demonstrate excellence in teaching and mentorship. A student committee reviews the nominations and selects winners each year.
