Peer Mentorship

FCS Peer Mentorship Program for Female-Identifying Students

Wondering how you are going to navigate your first year of Computer Science? 

Wonder no more. 

Sign up for our Peer Mentorship Program, facilitated by the Faculty of Computer Science (FCS) and the Women in Technology Society (WiTS), aimed at supporting first year identifying students.

All female-identifying students who sign-up will receive a mentor that will help them navigate the FCS systems, resources, and community.  Mentors and Mentees are matched based on shared experiences and objectives.

Benefits of having a Peer Mentor: 

  • Experience a sense of belonging, acceptance, and connection through your peers
  • Build skills and strategies to help with student life; academic and social
  • Opportunities for professional development

  • WiTS and Peer Mentorship information session
  • Bi-weekly Peer Mentorship Meet-ups
