To complete the BDP, every student must participate in at least one Connecting Experience—an undergraduate research or internship experience for credit, completed under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
The faculty mentor is a very important part of the Connecting Experience. In order to mentor a BDP student in a Connecting Experience, you must have a faculty appointment of some kind during the semester in which you are mentoring the student. Lecturers may serve as mentors. Graduate students may not serve as faculty mentors, although they may assist a faculty member in mentoring a student in a research experience.
For general questions or more information about mentoring BDP students in Connecting Experiences, please contact Emily Watson or call 232-7564.
Internship supervisors may contact Christine Anderson, the BDP liaison for internship sites.
