Arts Tri-Mentoring Program

Join the Arts Tri-Mentoring program and introduce yourself to the professional world!

  • Initiate and maintain professional relationships with industry mentors as well as with other students.
  • Find out some of the career options available for your major.
  • Develop transferable skills like networking, communication, time management and leadership, and prepare yourself for the transition from school to the working world.

 

What is Tri-Mentoring?

The Arts Tri-Mentoring Program connects Arts students with industry mentors and with one another. The program involves matching a UBC Alumni with a junior (2nd year) and a senior (3rd/4th year) student.  Matches are based on academic and career goals.

By matching students with experienced Arts alumni, the Arts Tri-Mentoring program empowers students to:

  • Develop professional communication skills
  • Gain clarity on their academic, career, and personal goals
  • Actively shape their Arts degree at UBC
  • Start building a professional network

Who is eligible to apply?

For the 2016-2017 academic year, we are accepting applications from second-year and senior level (3rd year+) students currently enrolled in full-time studies, regardless of your major. Please note that you may not be matched with a mentor who graduated with the same major as you.

What are the expectations for student mentees?

The time commitment for student mentees is 10-15 hours from November to April. Mentees are expected to fulfill the following through the course of the program:

  • Meet with your mentor and co-mentee a minimum 3 times
