Global Mentorship Program
What is the Global Mentorship Program?
The Global Mentorship Program (GMP) is designed to encourage students to expand their worldviews, improve their intercultural communication skills, make new friends, and increase English competency. To achieve these goals, domestic and international students are placed into Global Groups consisting of three to five students, including at least one student facilitator. Participants will meet with their Global Groups around three times each month. Global Groups pick the activity for each meeting, which might include exploring a new Chicago neighborhood, grabbing coffee, or eating at a restaurant. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to join in on several GMP group events, which bring together all Global Groups. Events might include a potluck, attending a sporting event, or a movie night.
Be a leader.
Students can apply to become a GMP facilitator*. GMP facilitators are responsible for contacting their respective group and engaging group members in meetings. Facilitators may also have opportunities to attend leadership development workshops and will receive a certificate at the end of the program. Students can also apply to the Events Committee, which assists in planning GMP group events. If you are interested in either position, please indicate your interest on your GMP application.
*Please note that this position is replacing the old position of Global Mentor. Domestic students and international students (who have been on campus for at least one year) are eligible to apply to be a GMP facilitator.
