Mentorship

The University College Mentorship Hub is one of the many ways UC helps students connect.  If you're an incoming student trying to find out more about UC, a current student looking for a peer or alumni support, or you're interested in being a mentor this is the page for you.  Read below for more information about the programs offered at UC and remember to check periodically to find out more about upcoming opportunities.

E-Mentorship Program

Do you remember the questions, excitement and fears you had the summer before you began your journey at University College?

The UC E-Mentorship Program connects current UC students with incoming first year students prior to their arrival.  We are currently accepting applications for E-Mentors to support this year's incoming students prepare for their first year at UC.  As an e-mentor, you will provide a valuable personal connection for a new student,  information about upcoming events, answer questions, provide referrals to campus resources, and assist in their transition to university. E-Mentors will also facilitate online communities for incoming students to meet other new students for support and prepare for their first days at UC.

Visit our E-Mentorship Application form for more details and how to apply.

The deadline for applications for the 2017 e-Mentorship program has now passed. Check back next year for more opportunities!
