Home Base Mentoring Program

Welcome to the Home Base Mentoring Program.  For AY 21-22, this program provides philosophy writing support to students currently enrolled in 100-level classes, 221, and 201. Students enrolled in those classes will have a mandatory meeting with a mentor for one of their class writing assignments during the semester; your professor will let you know which assignment will require the meeting. For this mandatory meeting, you will be asked to share a draft of the assignment with the mentor 24 hours before your meeting.  Mentors will be available in the week leading up to your deadline; a sign up for appointments will circulate closer to the date.

Students in 100-level classes, 221, and 201 are also welcome to connect with the mentors for writing support outside of their mandatory meetings. Please send them an email to arrange a time.

All mentors are Seniors and Philosophy Majors or Minors.

The Home Base mentors for AY 21-22 are:

CJ Larkin (clarkin2@wellesley.edu)

Ann-Marsha Alexis (aalexis@wellesley.edu)
