Research and Graduate Studies

Find a research mentor

Research Mentors at UFV provide faculty members with opportunities for success in the development of their research and scholarship program. 

Get assistance and feedback on your research and scholarship from a 'seasoned' faculty member who has a record of research and scholarly grants. Mentors gain satisfaction from helping faculty members by providing them with feedback and opening up possibilities of collaboration and connection to networks. Mentorship relationships promote collegiality and interdisciplinary work.

The Office of Research, Engagement, and Graduate Studies is committed to facilitating mentoring relationships to help increase productivity and commitment to research, scholarship, and the integration of research and scholarship into teaching.

Contact a Research Mentor to begin collaborating on your next project.

"(Research has) been a really sweet way to optimize my time at school. Looking back, I’m so grateful that I did this. It has truly been a highlight to work under Shelley (Canning). She has been a wonderful mentor and has impacted me and my nursing practice immensely."
