Faculty Mentoring vs. Research Mentoring
A "faculty mentor" is a South Seattle College professor who is interested in advising RST students. Each RST Academy member is assigned a faculty mentor upon joining the academy. Both then meet at least twice a quarter until the student transfers or changes mentors.
A "research mentor" is a professor or scientist at South Seattle College or another institution who leads a student or group of students on a scientific research project.

- If you don't see a faculty member in this file, ask the professor you prefer if they would like to join RST as your mentor.
To become a research mentor, scientists or faculty must first develop a research project. For information on developing and running such projects, please refer to the Undergraduate Research Manual.
