Many student leaders find an interest in developing their mentoring skills focusing on interpersonal support, guidance, mutual exchange, sharing of wisdom, coaching and role-modeling. An important aspect of mentorship is having an active role in developing supportive relationships where knowledge, skills and experience are shared. Experiential learning about mentorship involves peer and teacher mentorship in a variety of settings.
Our Student Life professionals work with the student-led Innis InSight mentorship group to provide workshops that support the development and enhancement of effective mentoring and role-modeling skills for our upper-year students. These student leaders offer guidance and support to incoming first-year students and are grouped by academic or program interest.
International students at Innis will be offered opportunities to have a Canadian student mentor to assist with the transition to life on campus and in the city of Toronto. Contact the Office of Student Life for details.
As well, the Office of Student Life and the Office of Alumnae and Advancement work together to offer networking skills seminars and career workshops for upper-year students. These workshops will better prepare students to attend the various networking socials where Innis students can meet and ask questions of our various Innis Alumnae professionals.
InSIGHT is the embedded mentorship program at Innis College which aims to help first-year students make a smooth transition into university life.
Now in their 12th year, InSIGHT groups first-year students with upper-year students in order to support and share with them their “insights” into university experiences – academic or otherwise. As well, tons of fun socials are organized throughout the year to introduce you to mentees and mentors from your own and other streams. All Innis College students — Innis residents, Chestnut residents or commuters — are welcome to apply!
DEADLINE: Friday, September 15, 2017 at 11:59pm.
