Face-mask order form for supervisors now includes volunteer-made cloth masks

Thanks to the generosity of student, faculty, staff, alumni, parent and community volunteers, campus recently received a sizable donation of handmade cloth masks for use by the university’s critical services staff. Supervisors can now request these on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Supervisors can use the face mask order form to request non-medical facemasks for their critical-services employees who need them and who have been authorized to be on campus.

The volunteers, who were organized and directed by the CU Boulder Volunteer Resource Center, provided both their time and materials to meet this unprecedented need. To get involved with this or other volunteer opportunities, visit the Volunteer Resource Center website

Teens needed for study on cognition, emotions, resilience

RADD Lab

The goal of our study is to learn about cognitive abilities, the brain networks that are involved in those cognitive abilities, and emotional wellbeing over the course of adolescence. We are interested in understanding how certain cognitive abilities, like being able to pay attention or learn actions that help you achieve goals, may help teenagers to cope with stress and stay healthy. 

This is a two-year study. Over the course of the study, you will have a total of two study visits at our laboratory in Boulder, each lasting about five hours. During these visits you will be interviewed about your life experiences; you will complete some computer games that involve paying attention and learning; you will have a neuroimaging scan while you either rest quietly or play computer games; and you will answer a set of surveys on a computer. 

Also as part of the study, you will complete a set of online surveys and a brief telephone interview once every six months (five times total during the two-year study participation). 

At the end of the study, you will have a final telephone interview, lasting about two hours.

You can earn up to $750 for your time and effort completing all parts of the study. 

Interested students should email raddlab@colorado.edu or fill out the online study eligibility screen
