Two CSD students, undergrad Bianca Robles-Muñoz, and Ph.D. candidate, Erik Jorgensen, are among 52 students featured in the University of Iowa's Dare to Discover campaign, an initiative that recognizes exploration of some of life’s most interesting questions through research, scholarship, and creative activity.

“Working with their mentors, UI students have adapted their work, and their work spaces, so they can continue to pursue research, scholarly, and creative projects safely,” said Marty Scholtz, vice president for research. “I am immensely proud of the many ways that all of our UI community has responded to this unprecedented global health crisis with professionalism and adaptability.”
