Faculty and undergraduate students are expected to work collaboratively toward the common vision of PATHS- UP, and in the process, build a culture of excellence in innovation, inclusion, and sustainability. This document outlines the expectations of PATHS-UP Scholars* and their PATHS-UP Faculty Mentors.
*Any undergraduate student funded by PATHS-UP is considered to be a PATHS-UP Scholar and an undergraduate student working on a PATHS-UP project but not being funded by PATHS-UP may optionally be a Scholar.
A PATHS-UP Scholar is expected to:
- Conduct PATHS-UP related research with excellence and integrity, and disseminate the work as possible through relevant channels such as peer-reviewed journals and academic conferences.
- Be mentored by at least one graduate student (with preference to a PATHS-UP Fellow).
A PATHS-UP Scholar is encouraged to:
- Take part in PATHS-UP related activities, such as the Student Leadership Council (SLC), outreach events, professional development activities, and diversity and inclusion training.
A PATHS-UP Faculty Mentor is expected to:
- Maintain high standards in research, education and service.
- Explain to incoming students what it means to be a PATHS-UP member: the expectations, obligations and privileges, including understanding the value of having a diverse community.
- Facilitate student participation in PATHS-UP related activities, such as the Student Leadership Council (SLC), outreach events, professional development activities, and diversity and inclusion training.
- Promote student participation in research projects involving collaboration with other PATHS-UP groups, industry partners, and/or international collaborators.
