What if a student I have not worked with asks me to be their "Capstone Scholarship & Discovery Project Advisor"?

Because the Capstone scholarly project is an opportunity for students to build on prior interests or explore new ones, it is likely that students with whom you have not worked may contact you to serve as an advisor. In addition, through the Capstone we encourage students to develop skills in reaching out and building networks which is an important professional skill. If you feel you are not able to work with this student, or are not an appropriate advisor we would ask that you consider how you might help the student identify someone who could serve in this role.
