Faculty Mentors

Our faculty mentors help you get the most out of your experience at UMKC by advising you on the specifics needed for your political science major or minor.

Roo Advising

General UMKC advising and preprofessional program advising is handled by Roo Advising. Current students should schedule appointments, including graduation audits, through Connect. 

Schedule an appointment

Meet With Your Faculty Mentor

Students who are interested in declaring a political science major or minor should schedule an initial advising appointment with a faculty mentor. Students who have already declared their major or minor should schedule advising appointments through Connect.

Majors are required to meet with their faculty advisor every semester to discuss degree requirements, devise a plan toward academic success, explore career and post-graduate goals and discuss questions or concerns they may have.

Prepare for your mentoring appointment by reviewing your MyPlan Audit and put together a potential course schedule for the upcoming term.
