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 ES program is also 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, HES Department Chairperson: general inquiries about mentoring

Dr. Rebecca Kappus, Associate Professor: mentoring for students with an interest in clinically-focused pathways

Dr. Travis Triplett, Professor: mentoring for students with an interest in strength & conditioning pathways
