Deadline to apply is September 27th, 2021. 

We want you to have the best university experience that we can provide, and this is what this mentorship program is all about.

Perhaps you want to expand your professional network, or maybe you have questions about internships, course selection, resume or interview process.

Well, this is why we're connecting you to some of our best upper year students to network and grow with!

Benefits for Mentees

It is an invaluable opportunity for second-year ICCIT students to enrich their learning experience and grow in a personalized environment to address their individual needs.

The ICCIT Student Mentorship Program helps mentees to build community engagement and develop necessary skills to achieve academic and personal goals.

To encourage your commitment to this program, your participation will add to your Co-Curricular Record (CCR).

Commitment of a Mentee

As a mentee, you are expected to:

  • Attend monthly group sessions organized by your mentor.
    • These group sessions are designed to give you the opportunity to network with other students in your program and learn valuable insight from workshops activities.
  • Connect with your mentor for one-on-ones.
    • Your mentor will be available for one-on-ones with you throughout the academic year. They can answer specific needs you have and help you transition into the ICCIT community. This is a great opportunity to develop a close relationship with your mentor.

Program Logistics

The mentoring program runs throughout the fall and winter terms, that is, from September 2021 to April 2022. The program involves about one monthly group session and one-on-ones with mentors as needed.

Between 60 and 90 minutes in length, the group sessions are to take place online via virtual meetings (please note that this may change throughout the academic year according to local authority guidelines).
