Faculty Mentors

Each semester it is essential that graduate students meet with a professor to ensure that they are making the best possible academic decisions. During the first semester of enrollment, all potential PhD students are assigned a Faculty Mentor in their major area who will advise them until a thesis advisor is selected. Student-mentor assignments are listed here. Send an email to dgs@math.uic.edu if you are a potential PhD student and do not find your name linked with a faculty mentor on this list.

Graduate students not seeking a PhD are assigned advisors as follows:

  • Nondegree graduate students: contact the Director of Graduate Studies, 341 SEO

  • MST (Elementary Option): contact Dan Miltner, 321 SEO

  • MST (Secondary Option): advisors are assigned according to the first letter of the student's last name:

    • A - J: contact Mary Anderson, 323 SEO
    • K - O: contact Regeta Slaughter, 319 SEO
    • P - Z: contact Dan Miltner, 321 SEO

Students should complete the advising process with their faculty mentor, or adviser. First year students have been assigned new faculty mentors, included in the list here. Your faculty mentors will help you with course planning and selection until you have selected a thesis adviser.

Faculty Mentors are encouraged to review the Faculty Mentoring Guide to assist them throughout this process.
