Mentoring at McGill... something for everyone!  

McGill is committed to creating a culture of mentoring. There are numerous mentoring opportunities at the University, each with its own guiding principles, structure and goals. Discover how mentoring can enhance your McGill experience!

Staff-Student Mentoring Program

The Staff-Student Mentoring Program is for you if you are an undergraduate student looking to enhance your overall University experience by connecting with a University staff member or graduate student. Every mentoring relationship will be unique in its nature and scope and will develop organically over time. A mentoring relationship can help close gaps, foster connections and build networks, as participants discover new opportunities and share knowledge and exchange insights about a wide variety of topics and interests.

NEW!  Graduate-Undergraduate Student Mentoring Program: Effective in January 2014, undergraduate mentees will have the option to choose between a staff mentor or a graduate student mentor through the graduate-undergraduate student mentoring program stream of the Staff-Student Mentoring Program. If you are an undergraduate student and you would like to be paired with a graduate student mentor, please indicate this on the Mentee Application Form under "Special Considerations." If you are a graduate student interested in mentoring an undergrad, please rachel [dot] schwartz [at] mail [dot] mcgill [dot] ca (email) us.
