RESOURCES

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM ▸ 4 Faculty members (Knights, Buijs, Turak, Fang) form the mentorship committee

▸ Purpose: ·

Help adjust to Eng Phys

·

Build relationships

▸ 2nd year students meet with an Ambassador in small groups, and have access to a Faculty member

·

Improve communications

·

Discuss courses & best practices

▸ Optional participation

·

Learn about extracurricular activities

▸ Confidential

·

Other opportunities: co-op, work, advisement

▸ The Committee works with the student Ambassadors to provide peer-to-peer mentorship

▸ Not a tutoring program
