The OSD Mentor Program Mission

The OSD’s mentor program is designed to enrich the university experience of the diverse student body. Our goal is to facilitate access to learning and support the inclusion of diverse learners during all stages of their university career. The program eases the transition to university life and supports students in building and developing their own networks and skillsets. Overall, this will empower students to achieve their academic goals.

Each student "mentee" will be paired with a Mentor who is selected from a similar academic background and shares similar extracurricular interests and individual preferences. During weekly one-on-one meetings, mentors and mentees will have the opportunity to talk about what the campus has to offer, discuss various fields of study and academic interests, connect with others and share ideas and resources, all while facilitating access and promoting an inclusive university environment.
