International Student Mentorship Program

Through the International Student Mentorship Program (ISMP) you can request to be partnered with an experienced U of M student who will serve as a point of contact and support during your transition to the U of M and Winnipeg.  All Mentors in our program have been trained on how to provide peer-to-peer personal, academic, and intercultural support for new international students.

You and your Mentor will arrange weekly meetings and your Mentor is also expected to communicate via e-mail or text as needed.  You and your Mentor will be partnered for the entire academic term.  The time commitment for this program is 18-20 hours throughout the term.
