Global First Year Mentoring

One of the three new initiatives we’ve launched this semester at Global FIU is a program called G1YM – Global First Year Mentoring!

Through pairing returning students in their second semester of G1Y with students in their first semester, we are working to build friendships and guide new students through their first semester at FIU. Students who opted into the program were matched based on interests and major, rather than matching by country, in order to foster an intercultural learning opportunity for both cohorts of students.

So far, we have eighteen pairs of mentors/mentees and are looking to expand the program every semester!
