Faculty Mentors

Mentors are an additional source of perspective and advice concerning important academic, career, and personal issues. Develop a relationship with your mentor by meeting with them regularly during the year.

Each history student is assigned a mentor based on their last name. Students are also encouraged to contact other faculty mentors whose area of specialty matches their interests. It is possible to have more than one mentor!
