INT 495 Spring 2011 International Studies Senior Seminar & Capstone Research Project STUDENT/MENTOR SEMESTER TIMELINE Students and mentors should, ideally, meet at least six times throughout the semester to touch base on the student’s progress, address questions, and exchange ideas for moving forward. Mentors, if possible, should also provide feedback on submitted drafts during these meetings. Please note that while mentors are not expected or obliged to provide feedback at all stages of paper development (the course instructor will do this), we kindly request significant mentor feedback on the complete draft (due on April 6 th , reviews returned by April 20 th ). It is the STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY to provide faculty with paper drafts on their due dates, schedule meetings in advance, check in with faculty to ensure continued availability the day before meetings, and to arrive on time! Mentors volunteer (without compensation) to fulfill this important role.
