- At the start, get together the initial submission to be an
- Get together good project ideas, weed out the bad ones, make sure that

every idea has a committed mentor available, should it be proposed and 
- Get together a mentor pool who will evaluate submissions.
- Answer questions from students during the student proposal phase.
- Whip mentors to do their evaluations.
- Once students are selected, ensure that people are happy and 
communicating on a regular basis.
- Whip mentors to do their midterm and final evaluations.
