Dr. Castillo-Montoya Awarded Grant from UConn Vice President for Research


EDLR’S Dr. Milagros Castillo-Montoya has been awarded a grant through the UConn Vice President for Research Scholarship Facilitation Fund.  Each year, the Scholarship Facilitation Fund works to advance faculty research interests and aids in the continuation of their contributions to their respective fields.

Dr. Castillo-Montoya received this grant for her project, “Higher Education and Student Affairs Administrator’s Learning of Assessment, Evaluation and Research.” As a co-instructor for the HESA program’s year-long service-learning course Assessment, Evaluation and Research in Student Affairs, Dr. Castillo-Montoya will be able to directly apply the knowledge she gains from this research to enhance her students’ learning and classroom experience.

Blanca Rincon, who will be joining the HESA program as a full-time faculty member in the fall of 2015, serves as the co-principal investigator for this project and as a co-instructor for the HESA program’s assessment, evaluation, and research course. We wish both our faculty the best of luck in their research endeavors!
