Belong@FHS Mentoring Program
Belong@FHS is a peer-mentoring program established to create a community of belongingness within the Faculty of Health Sciences. Mentoring involves social activities, online discussions and structured lunch sessions where students learn from the experiences of their senior peers. Belong@FHS pairs first year undergraduates with second, third and fourth years peers and new Honours students with current Honours and RHD students.
Mentoring programs have demonstrated success in enhancing academic success and a sense of belonging to the university in new students. Belong@FHS is a chance to be supported and provide support; to create that community that makes university life much more exciting.

What it involves
As a mentor, you will introduce prospective Honours students to the Faculty of Health Sciences research community, discuss your own research and give them insight into what it means to be a researcher.
Your mentoring team
Mentoring will take place between September 2013 and April 2014. You will work with another mentor to support a small group of students in their transition to Honours 2014. The meeting times and places can be designed to suit you (face-to-face or online) and your mentees.
