Congratulations to Dr. Antoinette Landor, HDFS Associate Professor and Millsap Professorship of Diversity and Multicultural Studies, on winning the APLU 2020 Board on Human Sciences Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. The award recognizes a faculty member in the human sciences for exceptional performance as a research mentor to undergraduate students. We are so very proud of her contribution to mentoring undergraduates at Mizzou and her successes as a faculty member in winning this prestigious national award.
Dr. Landor’s research focuses on the effect of race on individual, relational, and family health and functioning. Over the past five years, she has mentored and advised five Ronald McNair Scholars, five Psychological Sciences Honors Capstone students, as well as two Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) award recipients sponsored by the College of Human Sciences at the University of Missouri. She has helped to guide the research of over 20 students at the undergraduate level in our department and across campus. The McNair, Psychological Sciences Honors Capstone, and PURE student mentoring all involve year-long rigorous independent research projects.
