It’s not every day that a mentee/mentor team has the opportunity to present their research overseas, but for UTEP BUILD junior Luisa Castillo and ASU assistant professor of nutrition, Corrie M. Whisner, Ph.D., that’s how they wrapped up 2017.

What: BUILDing SCHOLARS Research Symposium

When: Saturday, September 30, 2017 (Session 1: 9:00 – 10:30 a.m., Session 2: 10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.)

Where: El Paso Natural Gas Conference Center, UTEP Campus

It has been a busy summer at the BUILDing SCHOLARS Center and at the University. We’ve welcomed new students, wished our graduates good luck, and said “see you in August” to our fellows who traveled to other institutions. The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) also ranked No. 1 in the Brookings Institution Study of U.S. Public Universities out of 342 public universities for “performing well in both research and social mobility.”
