Graduate Mentorship Program
The College of Arts and the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences have launched a new Graduate Mentorship Program to support Black, Indigenous and racialized graduate students in their colleges.
The program aims to create a safe space for graduate students, faculty and staff to build community, exchange knowledge, insights, and experiences. Through mentoring relationships Black, Indigenous and racialized graduate students will develop, share and enhance the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and connections they need to successfully complete their studies and transition into the world of work.
The expected time commitment for the mentorship program is at least 20 hours total over the fall and winter semester. This may vary depending on the mentor/mentee pairings as we recognize that different mentors/mentees will require different levels of support throughout their journeys.
