One of our strongest assets are our people. They build trusting partnerships, support the incubation and development of new projects, broker research relationships, and oversee the progress of our research programs. After 18 years of community-based research experience, CUP has become a necessary and important voice around tables in the community and on campus.
CUP is guided by a Steering Committee that provides guidance to Karen Edwards (Director) in her leadership of CUP operations. Karen is supported by a collaborative team of Rebecca Gokiert and Maria Mayan. Rebecca and Maria lead specific research areas within CUP. Click on the photo to read their bio.
