Resources for Faculty Mentors

Faculty Mentors play a key role in providing opportunities for students to work on pieces of their own research agenda, or guiding students in independent projects.  SOURCE supports faculty mentors by:

  • Coaching students on best practices for seeking and working with a faculty mentor
  • Assisting faculty to find student research assistants, if desired
  • Providing research stipend support for mentors of SOURCE grant recipients
  • Facilitating transparent student/mentor relationships with a student/mentor contract
  • Troubleshooting and mediating if issues arise
  • Recognizing and promoting the invaluable role of faculty mentors in making undergraduate research and creative activity possible
