Faculty Mentoring

Since a professional advisor works with students to understand program requirements and build a graduation plan, it gives Nutrition (NUT) 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 NUT program is also intentional about carving out time for these important topics in its required Introduction to the Profession and Professional Development courses.  Students are also matched with an individual faculty mentor when they declare the major.
