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 17 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. Laurie is supported by a collaborative team:  Rebecca Gokiert, Maria MayanStanley Varnhagen and Jason Daniels.  Rebecca and Maria lead specific research areas within CUP.  Stanley and Jason provide evaluation and ethics expertise.
