The INSPYRE research lab, directed by Dr. Samantha Slade, is recruiting undergraduate mentors for a three-hour course in the spring 2022 semester. Mentors will spend lunch and recess with an elementary school student twice each week. In return, mentors receive three hours of course credit and many great experiences.  

Mentors are required to pass a background check, have reliable transportation to and from the elementary school, have lunch availability 11 a.m-2 p.m. at least twice a week, and be available for training at the beginning of the semester.   

We do not meet regularly like traditional classes (mentoring takes the place of class time). We do have a course syllabus, class readings and paper assignments. Mentors will receive training at the beginning of the course and a grade at the end based on attendance and completion of assignments. We are interested in recruiting mentors from any college and major.

For more information, please contact the INSPYRE research lab at inspyre@wichita.edu.
