Having a mentor is a great way to become connected to the campus, focus on your academic success and personal growth, gain support from your peers at Carleton, and make connections with other students.
Explore some of the peer mentor programs available to you at Carleton.
The First Year Connections Program (FYC)
First Year Connections helps first year students make a successful transition to university life by preparing them to achieve their personal and academic goals.
During your first few weeks you will be paired with an upper year student who is in a similar academic program and has a similar schedule as you in order to match you with someone who will have the skills needed to help you along your way as you get acclimated to Carleton.
The Global PALS Program
The Global Peer Advisors Lending Support Program (Global PALS) provides incoming and current international students with the opportunity to connect with an upper year or graduate student who can provide insights and support as you navigate the social, cultural, and academic transition to life at Carleton University and in Ottawa.
Global PALS can support you in navigating Ottawa and Carleton resources, student support services, involvement opportunities, Canadian culture, and much more.
The Community Connections program will be operating in a virtual format for Fall 2021 to accommodate students taking their courses online.
Community Connections is a mentorship program organized through the Mentorship Network, designed to provide students with a customized peer support program.
The program offers two pathways: Community Building & Belonging or Positive Mental Health & Well-Being
The Mentorship Network Partner Programs
The Mentorship Network is an initiative of the Student Experience Office (SEO) which looks to connect students in peer supporting/mentoring positions across campus through SEO programs and other partner programs across campus. The Mentorship Network provides training, resources, and information for all Peer Supporters connected to the Network.
