Want a graduate mentor?

We have two methods for mentoring: faculty mentoring and graduate student mentoring.

The department encourages you to seek out mentoring about career and course information from the faculty who teach your classes. We know you! You know us! Come see us! See our research profiles to see who you might match up with. We do not formally assign faculty mentors, but all faculty are available for mentoring to our students. We want you to succeed, no matter where your path takes you!
