PWP Mentoring In The Age of Social Distancing


Hello PWP students! Now that in-person classes have been canceled for the remainder of the semester, we’re switching to online mentoring.

We use Webex Meetings for this. If you’ve never tried Webex before, keep reading; we’ll walk you through it!


1. E-mail one of us to request a meeting. Cassidy’s e-mail is; Alyssa’s e-mail is

2. Look for an e-mail with a link to join the meeting. If you email us during our “office hours” and we’re not already meeting with someone, the meeting will likely be scheduled for just a few minutes from when you first contact us. Otherwise, it may be a bit later.

3. Shortly before the meeting is scheduled to begin, click on the green “Join Meeting” button. You will be taken to the Webex site. At the site, you can choose to open up a Webex application. If you don’t yet have the Webex application on your device, you may be prompted to install it. If you are not prompted to install it, you can do so here. However, if you don’t want to install it, you can use Webex directly through your browser: see bottom of page, “Having trouble opening the desktop app? Join from your browser.”

4. If we’re not yet in the meeting when you arrive, please wait for us to join it. We’ll be with you as soon as we can!
