FACULTY MENTORING PROGRAM
Disability Resources and CEHSP have teamed up to
offer a faculty mentoring program. Students with disabilities will have
the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor on a one-on-one, ongoing
basis. Through the program students can expand their knowledge of their
major area, learn more about career options, develop a network on campus
and in the community, and develop a meaningful relationship with a professional
in their field. Faculty mentors have the chance to learn more about disability
issues and become better instructors. If you’re interested in being
a faculty mentor, please contact Penny Cragun at 726-8727.
