We nurture a rich intellectual community characterized by active student engagement with a faculty dedicated to excellent teaching and scholarly accomplishment.
One of the strongest connections between disciplinary expertise and student experience occurs when faculty mentor students in the process of scholarly inquiry….Scholar-mentor activities combine traditional teaching, experiential education, and professional expertise to mold graduates ready to take their place as working members of their professions or to continue their academic training in graduate or professional school.”
If you are interested in getting sample syllabi for your 499 or 498 student, then we suggest that you ask a faculty member in your department who has mentored students in the past.
