Upper-class mentors making a difference for new students

Almost 200 advice gurus assisted more than 200 first-year students with their transition to university through the Educational Development Centre’s Connecting4Success mentorship program this year.

The program targets first generation students – the first in their families to attend university – and matches them with upper-year students in the same program or faculty for one-on-counselling focused on common first-year academic, social and personal challenges.
