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.

Faculty benefits:

  • 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.
