A faculty mentor is defined as an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. Other SPHSC faculty appointments such as Lecturer, Acting Assistant Professor or research faculty (i.e., Research Assistant Professors, Research Associate Professors or Research Professors) are also eligible, with department approval from the Undergraduate Program Coordinator.

The role of the Faculty Mentor is to assist and guide students in planning and conducting research, writing the thesis paper, and preparing for and presenting at the Spring Honors Colloquium. Faculty mentors will meet with their honors students regularly and submit one grade at the end of the experience when all requirements have been met. An “N” will be submitted in intervening quarters.

For more information about SPHSC faculty members and their lines of research, students should consult the SPHSC Department Directory.
