Virtually all successful investigators have high quality mentors. Greater success is associated with more intensive mentoring, either through long-term interaction, or a variety of more numerous mentoring relationships. The mentored benefit greatly from the unvarnished, constructive feedback and guidance they receive. Their mentors provide introductions to interesting people, role models, and research opportunities. They expose their protégés to useful literatures and worthy topics. They offer encouragement balanced with rigor.

All CTS mentors are members of the Graduate College and actively pursue research and scholarship. All CTS students at the Master and PhD levels will have a mentor in their discipline of interest and may have a co-mentor when the dissertation project spans domains that are outside the expertise of the primary mentor.
