For Faculty Mentors
As a faculty mentor, you should:
- Meet with your scholar on a regular basis to provide direction, insight, and advice on your scholar's project.
- Communicate clearly with your scholar and the program staff about progress, successes, and missteps regarding the project and mentoring relationship.
- Attend annual spring poster Symposium. (April 20-22, 2020)
- Fill out an end-of-semester survey about your experiences with DSP and your scholar.
- You do not have to contribute funds in order to have a student participant. If you have funds to contribute, however, it enables us to serve more students.
- You will have an opportunity to work closely with young, eager people interested in learning how to conduct research.
- Your influence will have an impact on the success of an undergraduate student.
- You will have a bright and dedicated student to work on a project who can possibly remain on your team for several years.
- You will receive a set of fresh eyes and perspective to open new avenues of exploration.
