Research & Mentoring
Each fellow is required to complete an individual research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor, in the major discipline, by the end of the senior year.
At Haverford College this research experience often coincides with the completion of the Senior Thesis (Senior Research Seminar) requirement of the College for all graduating seniors. Guided research and intensive academic mentoring are the hallmarks of the MMUF Program, intended to serve as the foundations for preparing students for graduate study. Each fellow is paired with a faculty mentor with whom the fellow is expected to meet on a regular basis. The intensive mentoring process represents a serious commitment of time and effort for both students and professor (faculty mentor). In addition, the MMUF Faculty Coordinator will meet with each Fellow and his/her faculty mentor once every semester to ensure the active engagement of all Fellows in this process, and to facilitate the productivity of all participants towards a successful outcome of the mentoring process.
