The Mentorship Program (MP) is a program in which Dean’s List students (students with the best qualifications) are mentors of study abroad students as well as of other first semester students who may have difficulties adapting to university life. It involves matching study abroad mentees with volunteer mentors from our Dean’s List in order to help the former adapt to the university life at CIS University and life in the city of Madrid in general.
Mentors are proactive in mentoring mentees, with general assistance and advice throughout. The duration of the program, more significantly during the first weeks of the semester. Mentors work closely with the Department of Student Development, attend occasional meetings and report on the progress of the mentoring process.
In addition, mentors are invited and encouraged to participate in the Ambassadors Circle, which includes cultural activities organized by CIS University students for international students.
