RST Academy

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.
