What that means when you yourself are a Ouachita student is that you’ll have great opportunities for mentor relationships with your teachers.

Transitional Experiences Of Physical Therapy Clinicians To Physical Therapy Faculty Members: A Phenomenological Study, Jessica Jacobs

All Dissertations

In physical therapy education, there is a shortage of physical therapy faculty members.

Intentional Mentoring: A Shared Journey Of Discovering And Supporting Diverse Talent In Academia, Barbara Holmes, Kent Willis

"But I'M Not An Engineer"...Collaboration Between A Librarian And An Upper Division Project-Based Engineering Program, Heidi J. Southworth, Rebecca Bates, Robert Sleezer

Library Services Publications

Since 2013, a librarian at Minnesota State University, Mankato has collaborated with faculty and students in an upper division project-based engineering program.

At first glance, this match may appear to be a recipe for failure. Indeed, in those first few years, the librarian’s angst about the missing engineering degree caused many sleepless nights of worry and concern. However, there came a time when the words “but I am not …
