Advising and Listserv
Drop-in Advising and Appointments
The Certificate’s primary advisors are Robin Mittenthal and Sweta Shrestha. However, please feel free to contact other certificate team members listed at the bottom of the main page.
You can contact Sweta with your questions by phone (608-262-3862) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please email Sweta to schedule one-on-one appointments.
You can contact Robin by phone (608-262-3718) or e-mail (email@example.com). All declarations must be done in person and many questions are more easily handled that way, too. There are three ways to meet Robin:
1) Drop-in hours: These are generally Mondays 10 am – 12 pm and Wednesdays 11 am-1 pm in 272 Nutritional Sciences. In the fall, on most Tuesdays there are also drop-in hours from 1:30-2:30 in 301 Agricultural Hall. However, please check the calendar to make sure hours are being held in any given week. You do not need to contact Robin to attend these hours — just come by!
2) Posted Appointments: Click here to see and reserve appointment slots without having to contact Robin first (fall and spring semesters only)
3) Special appointments: If Robin’s posted appointment slots don’t work in your schedule or you want to meet over summer or winter break, please e-mail him at <firstname.lastname@example.org> to schedule one. Please suggest 2-3 time windows that would work for you, ideally at least three or four days out and between 9 am and 3 pm (earlier and later times are possible with enough notice). E-mailing Robin something like “can we meet tomorrow at 2:15?” rarely works out. Something like “I’m free next Wednesday from 10-2 and Thursday from 2-5″ is better!
Robin’s office is in 272 Nutritional Sciences — click here for a map.
