Dr. Joseph Baker has been elected as a national Councilor of the Council on Undergraduate Research, or CUR. Professor Baker will serve a 3-year term as a Councilor in CUR’s Chemistry Division, beginning June 2018.
Councilors compose the governing body of CUR. They attend the annual business meetings held each June, serve on divisional and Council-wide committees where they participate in helping shape the future of undergraduate research nationally.
Councilors have been elected because they are leaders in the community or because they show unusual promise of leadership. They demonstrate this leadership in the Council by seeking solutions to problems faced by the broader research community.
