Mentors & Contacts

Students on Bench


The URCA team is here to support you in every step of the research process—from formulating a question to presenting the answers you found!

Why would you contact us?

If you're overwhelmed or curious about research and unsure where to begin, we're here to help you out.

Are you wondering how to contact a professor to express interest in their work? Come in and we’ll help you draft an email. 

Are you applying for a conference and want someone to review your abstract? Send us an email.

Do you want to embark on an ambitious project but don't know what resources are available? We'll help you identify them.

Whatever your question or concern may be, we want to help, so don’t be shy about visiting us. If we cannot help you ourselves, we'll help you find out who can.


How can you contact us?

Office hours: drop in office hours are available daily, on Zoom and in our office (Library Rom 1576, Oceanside on the ground floor).
To see the schedule of our drop-in hours and Zoom links, use the Google Calendar.

Appointments: one-on-one meetings with a peer mentor can be scheduled with the Shoreline calendar links on their profiles below. You will have the option to schedule in person or on Zoom. You can also schedule an appointment with Anita on Shoreline to meet either on Zoom or in-person.

Email the peers.

Email Anita.

Nectir is useful if you just have a quick question you want answered on the public channel.
