Building Connections for Success!
Welcome to the Spring 2021 Semester

The Team Mentoring Program welcomes you all to a new year and a new semester.  The past year has challenged all of us in many ways, and the importance of connection has certainly shown itself in our current social distanced climate.  The mentors and advisors within TMP are committed to providing mentorship that matters to you.  Your current mentorship needs may look and feel different than in the past or will be in the future.  However, we encourage you to stay connected to the resources that our program provides, to your mentor through methods that feel safe and comfortable, and to the WSU community as we continue to navigate what the new ‘normal’ may look and feel like on campus.  
How will our team support you through this semester?  Check out our calendar full of virtual events, including informal hang outs with mentors and TMP staff, workshops that help you make the most of your degree program pursuits, and informational chats with former TMP alumni who are making great strides in their post-graduate work.  TMP offers so many ways to stay involved and connected to a community of students, faculty, industry professionals, and student support staff- please take advantage of the connections and resources that this unique program offers to you as a student pursuing a challenging STEM degree.

We wish you a productive, safe, and healthy spring semester!
