International Student Mentor Program

The International Student Mentor Pilot Program is designed to facilitate communication and peer-to-peer support regarding pre-arrival information for incoming new students,  how to register for courses, and routine questions as they relate to the successful welcome and arrival of new international students to VIU. This year, the program will focus support for newly admitted students from India, with the hope to formally expand the program to all newly admitted international students.
Mentors engage newly admitted international students about content in our online pre-arrival course, Ready, Set, Go!  The mentors help facilitate reminders and engage dialogue around routine issues and queries (such course registration, housing, buying books, and what to bring).
