International Peer Mentorship Program
The International Peer Mentorship program at Corpus Christi College is a peer-mentorship initiative to support new international students, connect Canadian and international students, and give returning students a leadership opportunity.
New international students (mentees) are paired with returning domestic student (mentors) to support and learn from each other. Working in tandem with Academic Advising and the Student Life office, peer mentors will be a source of support for meeting new people, building networks and experiencing Canadian culture.
Be a Mentee (new international students)
At Corpus Christi College, we really want you to be involved the community because we care about your well-being. We are committed to supporting international students with social and cultural experiences to facilitate their academic success and personal achievements at Corpus Christi College. To aid in your success, we are excited to provide the opportunity for international students to be members of our International Peer Mentorship program.
Peer mentors are a valuable resource in providing a student’s perspective of post-secondary life and they look forward to sharing their knowledge, experiences, challenges and insights with you.
Your peer mentor may be your partner when we organize social activities such as watching the Vancouver White Caps soccer games, celebrating at the Fall Thanksgiving BBQ, cheering for the UBC Thunderbirds football team and many more opportunities.
All international students receive a letter with information in the International Peer Mentorship program. For more information, contact Antonio Daling at [email protected]
Be a Mentor (returning domestic students)
All new students have to make adjustments to be successful at university. On top of adjusting to academic life, international students may also be adjusting to quirks of Canadian culture, being 1000s of kilometers away from their families and newfound independence.
As an International Peer Mentor you will work as part of a team and independently to support international students with social and cultural experiences to facilitate their academic success and personal achievements at Corpus Christi College.
The learning won’t just be one way! Your mentee will teach you about their culture, open your eyes to exciting new foods and give you valuable experience working with international communities.
