Academic Mentoring Program

The Academic Mentoring Program is a network of student volunteers who foster academic engagement by creating an environment where students can continue to explore their academic potential.

Enrich your academic experience by participating in the following:

  • Study groups
  • One-on-one Mentoring
  • Discovering strategies for success
  • Exploring services and resources on the Durham campus

And by helping you get involved with Trent University Durham!

Who Is An Academic Mentor?

Academic Mentors are accomplished students who serve as role models and represent an important source of information and guidance.

Academic Mentors take advantage of campus supports and help fellow students tap into these resources. Academic Mentors volunteer their time and are not tutors or Teaching Assistants.

To speak with the Academic Mentoring Coordinator about how to get involved, email the Academic Mentoring Coordinator.

One on One Mentoring

One on One Mentoring is offered for students who are looking for more individual or specific support. Please contact the Academic Mentoring Program Coordinator to be paired with an academic mentor.
Email michelleryken@trentu.ca.
