Advising & Mentoring
I advise ten undergraduate history majors, with whom I meet at least once every semester. I engage in conversations about their choice of concentration and classes, focusing on intellectual substance/trajectory as well as making sure they are fulfilling university and major requirements. I try to do a respectful mental health check, making clear my availability as a resource to consult should they run into problems that affect their academic performance. I also encourage them to think about how their choice of classes, their path through the major, might contribute to their professional development and their civic engagements.
