Faculty Mentoring for Undergraduate Students

Your faculty mentor will learn about your strengths and goals so they can tailor recommendations and advice specifically to you.

Mentoring Conversations

Your faculty mentor will support you in how to best align your wants and needs to contributing to the student organizations and community engagement projects. Find out how to enrich your studies with experiences like scholarships, undergraduate research, internships and other opportunities. Also, these conversations will help you practice articulating your strengths and experiences from inside and outside the classroom to others, including prospective employers.

Your interactions, alongside those with your professional advisor in Roo Advising, will help you make the most of your time and efforts at UMKC.

Roo Advising will help you meet all the minimum requirements toward your undergraduate degree. Current students can schedule appointments, including graduation audits, through Connect.
