UBC Science, are you looking for academic or career guidance? Or maybe you’re looking for an opportunity to develop your leadership skills? In that case, the SUS x GSS Mentorship program is the perfect fit for you!
What do we aim to do?
We aim to help undergraduate students gain more insight into graduate school and future academic/career goals by pairing undergraduate student mentees with upper-year or graduate student mentors in diverse scientific fields of study. Through this experience, student mentors can add to their CV, improve communication skills, and expand their professional network.
What do we value?
Our program has a flexible structure, but we value fostering a sense of community for our mentors and mentees, so we make it a point to engage with everyone by hosting monthly events (optional social events and professional development workshops) and gathering feedback along the way.
How do we pair?
For pairing, we do our absolute best to match mentors and mentees who have closely aligned academic and personal interests. Following pairing, we recommend mentors and mentees connect with each other at least once a month. This way, pairs can get to know each other more and better understand one another’s goals.
