REACT Scholars meet with a faculty mentor to jointly construct a Professional Development Plan and to discuss expectations and how to avoid common pitfalls.

Peer Mentoring

Incoming REACT Scholars are paired with a more advanced Scholar or well-established student researcher to assist with the transition to UTSA. This peer mentor provides advice, mentoring, and support for academic progress.
