PD Opportunities for All Staff

Staff and faculty are invited to participate in a unique mentoring experience – the Student Experience Mentorship Program.  In this program the staff or faculty members are the mentee and matched with a student mentor.  The student mentors the mentee through experiential activities concerning what it is like to be a student at U of T.  Through this program participants participate in two group meetings and three individual meetings (7 – 10 hrs commitment) between January and March.    Applications are due January 9, 2018.  Any questions please contact erin.clifford@utoronto.ca

“Even though many of us are working with students all the time, it’s more often task-based. This program flips that and encourages us to ask, be curious and listen. That is invaluable and something we should all make time to do more of.”
