Mentoring Program for Students

Faculty members at the Physics Department have designed to program to better facilitate communication between you, students in the program, as well as professors and other instructors. The mentors provide academic support and advising to newly enrolled students during studies as well as help manage any day-to-day problems you may encounter in the physics program. The mentor can also help students to plan academic and future professional career.

The Mentoring Program is optional. During the first six semesters of the program, we provide students with a faculty mentor who will contact you after you enroll to arrange an initial meeting.

For Students

If you have not received an e-mail from your mentor - or you have questions or comments about the Mentoring Program - just send an e-mail to the corresponding Mentoring Program coordinator.
