Dr. Shana Stoddard, the new director for student mentoring, understands the importance of having a network of mentors. When she joined the Rhodes’ Department of Chemistry in 2015 as a William Randolph Hearst Teaching Fellow, she received dynamic mentoring from Professors of Chemistry Darlene Loprete, Jon Russ, and Loretta Jackson-Hayes. The intentional and supportive trio promoted Stoddard’s own development as a teacher-scholar-mentor. At Rhodes, Stoddard has become a mentor herself, making herself available to students, bolstering their confidence and encouraging their pursuit of postgraduate work, especially women and students of color.
