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 (firstname.lastname@example.org
Ann-Marsha Alexis (email@example.com)
Wania Ahmad (firstname.lastname@example.org)
They will also hold three writing workshops throughout the term that all students enrolled in any philosophy class are warmly invited and highly encouraged to attend:
Founders Hall 317
February 16 - Reading and Writing Basics
March 16 - Identifying Arguments
April 13 - Objections and Responses
