Lora Becker, PhD
As director of the Major Discovery Program, Professor Lora Becker understands that many students have lots of questions and may be uncertain as to their area of study. "Students are asked 'what they want to be when they grow up,' but may not have a clear picture of what that may be. I'm here to help students find their passion and transfer it to a program of study."
In addition to Becker, students will work with faculty members throughout campus and the Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education. "Faculty members will serve as sounding boards and provide answers about career paths, graduate schools, and research options. Career services rounds out the process by offering personality and skills assessment. We are working together to get students on the right path for them — a path leading to personal success."
