The Center for New Student & Family Programs (NSFP) at the University of Utah welcomes applicants for the Campus Life Mentor (CLM) Program! The Campus Life Mentor Program at the University of Utah serves new students in their first year on campus. The goal of the program is to connect newly admitted students with upper class students who have demonstrated success in college.

WHO ARE THE CAMPUS LIFE MENTORS?
Campus Life Mentors are successful students that remember what it’s like to be new at the University of Utah and want to play a positive role in the success of new students. They come from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences and have various career and academic goals.

Each year, the APS honors a society member for their excellent contributions to physiological research, their commitment to mentoring and encouraging young scientists, and for fostering exceptional educational opportunities in physiology.
Albertine’s research focuses on bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a chronic disease that disrupts lung development in premature babies and infants who used mechanical respirators to breath. BPD affects children all around the world, but scientists don’t know exactly what causes it, or how to treat it. Albertine’s lab has made discoveries in individual types of lungs cells and in the genes that control the cell’s development, and identified key molecular mechanisms that disrupt lung development. The lab’s results suggest that the stresses associated with a preterm birth — intubation, mechanical respiration, and the neonatal intensive care unit — disrupt gene expression in the immature lung.
Implementation of the labels is supported by the Real Food Challenge, the Sustainability Office, Chartwells, the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund and the Office of Undergraduate Research.
The prompt submission of textbook adoptions by faculty each semester enables the Campus Store to stock the necessary books in a timely manner. This increases the chances of offering used textbooks, eBooks, and rental textbooks, all of which help students save up to 50 percent off of new book prices. The Campus Store relies heavily on your timely response, so please don’t delay.
Final textbook adoptions for Fall 2017 Semester is due March 31.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Campus Store’s textbook adoption program, best wishes for another great academic year.
