    Summary of Nominee’s Mentoring Activities
Department of Communication
Qingwen Dong, Ph.D.
 
Most Recent Activities
I believe that my teaching and my mentoring cultivate undergraduate students to develop a passion for doing Communication research and lead them to pursue higher levels of research thereafter. Recently, I guided two students to receive Pacific Summer Fellowships to conduct extensive research projects. One student presented the paper at a regional conference and then went on to receive her Master’s degree in Communication. The other student conducted an international research project in Kabul, Afghanistan and the research paper was presented at the National Communication Association Annual Conference. The student won lots of praises from that presentation and is now applying to graduate programs.
 
Additionally, I gave a talk on my experience of doing undergraduate research at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) last year in La Crosse, WI and will give another talk on mentoring international students in doing undergraduate research in April of this year at the NCUR 14 in Lexington, KY.
