Faculty Mentoring

Having professional advisors who work with students to understand program requirements and build a graduation plan gives Exercise Science (ES) faculty more time for meaningful conversations with students about professional standards and responsibilities, as well as pathways to both graduate schools and careers.

Of course, mentoring relationships evolve organically for many of our students and faculty both inside and outside the classroom, but the program is intentional about devoting time to these important topics in the required Introduction to Exercise Science course. 

The following individuals have been identified as initial points of contact for mentoring:

Dr. Kelly Cole, Department Chairperson: general mentoring inquiries

Dr. Rebecca Kappus, Associate Professor: mentoring for students interested in clinical focused pathways

Dr. Travis Triplett, Professor: mentoring for students interestedvin strength & conditioning pathways
