This year, we are particularly interested in people who are willing to act as strong mentors over the next year, not just recruiters over the next month. We are concerned with the frequent drop off in mentoring practices that occurs during new students’ first year here and looking for peer mentors who are committed to recruiting students this spring and mentoring them over the next year. Again, please be sure to email me a brief description of why you are interested in being a peer mentor by Friday, January 20 if you want to volunteer as peer mentor coordinator or as a peer mentor.
Rick Wysocki is the digital media research assistant this year. He will have open hours in the Mac Lab (HUM 204) all semester to help Faculty, Graduate Students, and Students with multimodal and digital projects. His hours are Mondays from 1-2 p.m. and Fridays from 2-3 p.m. From Rick: “I’m happy to help people across the university with their digital/multimodal projects. It is also a good thing for teachers to let their students know about if they need access to a computer or specifically to a Mac.”
