Mentor of the Year

Faculty-mentors play a critical role in supporting students through the capstone project process. A faculty-mentor guides the student through the development of forming an idea into a realistic project; communicates with the student about methodologies related to the project; informs the student about the unpredictable nature of research; helps the student adhere to the expected time commitment related to the project; conducts regular progress reports with the student; reviews drafts of all project components; and assists the student with preparing an oral or poster presentation of the project. Each year, University Honors requests nominations from Honors students to recognize faculty-mentors who have made an impact on their educational experience. Faculty-mentors of the Year are recognized at the University Honors Cording Ceremony.
