Congratulations to Dr. Antoinette Landor on being named the 2020 Undergraduate Research Mentor by The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities Board on Human Sciences. Dr. Landor is an Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Science in the College of Human Environmental Sciences. 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.
