Student Mentoring Program

A.  Selection of the team

At the admission's interview, the student and interviewers will work to identify an initial interest in an area of emphasis.  Admitted students will be assigned faculty mentors based on this interview and the results of their individual development plan.  The mentoring team will be 2 members of the graduate faculty that can provide advice relevant to student's interest and career goals.

B.  Schedule for Mentoring Team Meetings

The first meeting with the team should occur within the first week of the fall semester.  After that, the student should have some form of interaction with the team (in person or email) at least once every 2 weeks.  Face-to-face meetings should occur no less than twice a semester and every 2 weeks during the summer session.
