Faculty Mentoring

Since a professional advisor works with students to understand program requirements and build a graduation plan, it gives Exercise Science (ES) faculty more time for meaningful conversations with students about professional standards and responsibilities, as well as pathways to both graduate schools and careers.  Of course, mentoring relationships evolve organically for many of our students and faculty both inside and outside the classroom, but the ES program is also intentional about carving out time for these important topics in the required Introduction to Exercise Science course.  Dr. Kelly Cole, the department chairperson, is a good contact for ES students who are seeking individual faculty mentoring.  Dr. Travis Triplett, the undergraduate program director, is the best contact for students with an interest in strength & conditioning pathways.
