Do you have questions or information that you are interested in learning about as it relates to advising undergraduate students?
Research supports that contact with faculty is one of the most important factors contributing to student retention (Kuh, Light, Astin, etc.).
How can you do this?
Think about your own abilities and interests in research when you were undergraduates and how you were involved as undergraduates in faculty research.
Remember…many students are scared of you! World-class = intimidating!
How many of you have worked closely with advising/mentoring undergraduates…what worked? What was challenging?
What types of resources would be useful to know? What would you refer students to?
