Building Relationships

The Importance of Your Professors, Advisors, and Mentors

Evaluation Letters

Evaluation Letters are crucial to the application process. Those speaking on your behalf will have an influence on your results. Develop cordial and close relationships with faculty, research supervisors, advisors, job supervisors, and others so those who write on your behalf will know you well and appreciate your strengths.

Need Help Connecting?

If you think you would benefit from coaching on how to connect with faculty and other mentors, talk to peers, your HPP advisors, Undergraduate Deans, Deans Office Student Consultants (DOSCs) and folks at the Center for Professional Development.
