HRD undergraduate receives UROP grant and SEED award
Congratulations to Bai Vue, undergraduate HRD major in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD), who received a grant for Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and the Scholarly Excellence in Equity and Diversity (SEED) Award!
The goal of UROP is to help students become involved in research and creative activity to stimulate thinking, broaden perspectives, expand intellectual and social networking, strengthen connections to the University of Minnesota community, and strengthen connections to research and creative communities nationally and throughout the world. Bai will be working with Lou Quast, OLPD associate chair, on behavioral patterns of managerial career derailment through the multi-rater feedback developmental instrument.
The undergraduate SEED Award program honors outstanding diverse undergraduate students who demonstrate impressive achievement and leadership in the area(s) of a) academic performance and/or b) community outreach/activism. In addition, SEED Award recipients will demonstrate a deep understanding of and commitment to issues of equity, diversity, and social justice through their academic work and/or service to the community. Six to ten undergraduate SEED Awards, ranging from $1,000 to $,3000, are awarded each year.
