  • thesis or dissertation advisor or co-advisor
  • thesis or dissertation committee member
  • senior honors thesis advisor or co-advisor
  • honors thesis committee member
  • Independent Study Supervision (does not include advisees)

The number of years to degree completion should also be provided for any graduate students for which the faculty member is advisor or co-advisor.  Student publications and presentations for which the faculty member served as a mentor should also be listed.
