As a student in the Department of Chemistry, you can connect with faculty, review safety policies and access important forms.
The Department of Chemistry’s mentoring program connects faculty and students as part of SLU’s Integrated Advising and Mentoring System. Faculty members guide students in the major so you can stay on track to graduate, discuss research opportunities, pursue internships and explore other career-related opportunities.
As a mentee in the program, you will enroll in CHEM 1950: First-Year Mentoring and CHEM 2950: Second-Year Mentoring, both zero credit courses. These courses consist of a one-time group mentoring session. In the first year session, faculty will discuss the major requirements, present the curriculum plans, answer questions and meet their mentees. In the second-year meeting, the faculty provide updates to curriculum plans and discuss opportunities for undergraduate research. You are also required to meet with your faculty mentor and outline your curriculum plan in both your freshmen and sophomore years to fulfill the requirements for this course.
Transfer students who are not able to participate in CHEM 1950 and 2950 can enroll in CHEM 3950: Transfer Student Mentoring. This course will include a group mentoring session and a meeting with an assigned faculty mentor.
Completion of CHEM 1950 AND 2950, OR 3950, is required for graduation.
