Mentoring Objectives & Scope

During our time together we will be exploring the question, “What does the future look like?”  Based on the idea that our future lies within our language, this conversation makes it possible to articulate what we are seeing and then discuss what we look forward to as we then discuss “What’s next?”  With this question as our theme for the year, we will have plenty of latitude to cover specific topics that may be particularly important to those in our group.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I will be able to have some flexibility with regard to when and where I meet with students.
