What is the role of the Learning Communities Mentor in the Capstone Course?

LC mentors are knowledgeable about the requirements for the Capstone course and are excellent resources for helping students in the beginning stages of the their Capstone work, such as picking topics, defining initial project steps, and recommending Advisors. LC Mentors work most closely with students on their Capstone during their first year and the first semester of their second year (before the student identifies a project-related Capstone advisor); LC Mentors review student Capstone progress reports during this time frame.
