Students are mentored through the Notation by two advisors: one from PWR and one from a disciplinary department. Advisors support students as they choose Notation classes and develop and revise their ePortfolios.
Finding Notation Advisors
Notation students are responsible for finding their own advisors upon entering the Notation program.
PWR advisors must be instructors in the PWR program. Students looking for a PWR advisor should consider asking their PWR 1 or PWR 2 instructor, someone that they have worked with at the Hume Center, or an instructor who shares similar academic interests. You can find out more about PWR instructors on the Instructor Profiles page.
Faculty advisors should be someone from a student's major or a related discipline. Students looking for a Faculty advisor should consider asking their major advisor, research advisor, or an instructor from a course in their major.
Submitting Advisor Information
Students can submit advisor information to their Notations Team, using the email addresses below:
- Notation in Cultural Rhetorics: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Notation in Science Communication: email@example.com
Meeting with your Advisors
Students should plan to meet with their advisors at least once per academic year to discuss their progress in their Notation program, coursework, and ePortfolio. Try to schedule a meeting during your advisor's office hours, or for PWR advisors, through Hume.
