Peer Mentoring Program

Group of mentors and students sitting on a hill

The Integrated Sciences Mentoring Program provides mentoring support for Integrated Sciences students by promoting and facilitating discussions amongst senior students (students with approved applications) and junior students (students working on their applications). 

The Integrated Sciences Senior Peer Mentors provide information to newly admitted and returning students about course planning and registration, and provide feedback to students regarding Integrated Sciences application essays and course selections. Discussion amongst mentors and mentees allows students to learn about various volunteer and academic opportunities on campus that will facilitate their educational goals, helping to build a stronger community for Integrated Sciences students.

Mentees will benefits through:

  • Advice on how to contact faculty mentors - both listed and unlisted on the website
  • One-on-one guidance from senior ISCI students on the whole degree proposal process
  • Networking opportunities with your fellow ISCI students throughout the year at social events and workshops
  • Insight into what’s beyond your ISCI degree through connecting with the following ways ISCI alumni

Mentors will benefit by:

  • Gaining leadership and mentorship experience
  • Giving advice and guidance to your mentee
  • Meeting via zoom or in person once a month to answer questions and share your experience
  • Connecting with your mentee to ensure their smooth transition into the program
  • Accessing mentor-mentee social events and workshops, where you can meet and socialize with fellow ISCI students
