Mentor workshop targets faculty

Lee Bernstein (History) will lead a workshop for faculty interested in mentoring undergraduate research projects, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, in the Teaching and Learning Center in College Hall. Lunch will be provided.

Faculty members with no prior mentorship experience with undergraduates are encouraged to attend. Topics to be explored include recognizing and fostering development of student researcher characteristics and what type of work is appropriate for student researchers. Participants will receive a copy of “How to Mentor Undergraduate Researchers,” a booklet filled with tips and information.
