Nicole Campione-Barr, a professor in the University of Missouri Division of Psychological Sciences, recently earned two national awards recognizing her contribution to the science of psychology and her commitment to mentoring the students in her program.

Campione-Barr was honored by her peers nationwide as an Association for Psychological Science (APS) Fellow. Fellow status is awarded to APS members who have made sustained outstanding contributions to the science of psychology in the areas of research, teaching, service and/or application.

Campione-Barr was also selected for the 2022 Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Mentoring Award. This award is given annually to only one research mentor in the U.S.  Nominees for the award are mid-career psychology professors who have influenced undergraduate research through their own research, through scholarly or creative projects with undergraduates, and through demonstrated leadership activities.

Campione-Barr has a history of awards and accomplishments including receiving MU’s Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year award in 2014 and the Ann Covington Mentorship Award from the MU Office of Fellowships in 2022.

She currently serves on the Undergraduate Research Advisory Committee and is the director of the Honors Program in Psychology. Since beginning her work at Mizzou in 2006, she has mentored more than 70 undergraduates in her research lab.

One of her nominators wrote: “She truly has an unparalleled commitment to uplifting and empowering students to grow in their research and development. Her persistence in continuing to empower students — even when they are struggling and especially when they need extra support — is the mark of a truly outstanding mentor. I know that I have been blessed to have a mentor like Dr. Campione-Barr to nurture my interests, patiently walk me through my learning curves, and offer reinforcement when I need it most.”
