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.
