Faculty Mentoring

Since a professional advisor works with students to understand program requirements and build a graduation plan, it gives Public Health (PH) 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 PH program is also intentional about carving out time for these important topics in required group meetings hosted by the PH faculty annually, and in the required Professional Development in Public Health course.  Students are matched with an individual faculty mentor when they declare the major as well.
