This 400 series course held bi-weekly combines a theoretical orientation of mentorship with the opportunity to mentor first-year students from various areas of study enrolling in a small course. It provides instruction, support, and practical experience for developing and increasing mentorship skills and also for reflecting on these, with in-course feedback and final roundtable presentation. Since the Colloquium includes students working in a variety of Humanities and Social Science disciplines, the emphasis is on interdisciplinarity.
