Dr. Dan Caprioglio Scholarship for Undergraduate Research

Dr. Dan CaprioglioIn June 2017, the CSU-Pueblo family tragically lost our beloved biology professor Dr. Dan Caprioglio. Dr. Caprioglio was the 2016 recipient of the award for Faculty Excellence in Advising/Mentoring. In addition to serving as a professor, he was an assistant coach for track and cross country programs and as the Faculty Athletic Representative, a position that allowed him to use his advising and mentoring expertise to ensure the success of our student-athletes both on and off the field as well as in and out of the classroom. He also mentored students in undergraduate research, accompanying Tri-Beta students to winning presentations at their regional conferences. He was graduate coordinator for the Master of Science in Biology and served on the GPNS advisory board with oversight of the master’s programs in biology, chemistry, and biochemistry.

His wife, Helen, assistant provost for assessment, has established a memorial scholarship for undergraduate research in Dan’s honor with the CSU-Pueblo Foundation to carry on Dan's legacy and benefit undergraduate research for CSU-Pueblo students. Dr. Dan Caprioglio will forever remain in the hearts of the many lives he touched and through this scholarship his legacy will live on in perpetuity. Click here to donate.
