Support for Students

Departments support their students in a variety of ways. Forms of support include mentoring; faculty-supervised work and part-time employment; and programs such as tutoring and peer mentoring.  

The survey items related to these various forms of support for students are identified below. This information is followed by links to the tables that summarize responses from CS and Biology/Life Sciences departments.
