Mentorship Program

What is Mentorship at CIS?


  • A program designed to help freshmen and study abroad students become more acclimated to CIS and life in Madrid.
  • A way to enhance the international student experience at CIS.
  • While not technically an academic mentorship program, mentors can give appropriate guidance and feedback on academic issues.
  • Some goals of the program include contributing to overall academic development by sharing useful knowledge that support the are helpful even beyond the classroom environment.
  • A mentor is not a tutor, advisor, counselor or teacher, rather a peer who often becomes a recently arrived student’s first friend at their new home away from home.



We expect from both mentor and recipient of mentoring:


  • Open communication and dialogue.
  • Open-mind and positive attitude to facilitate learning and personal growth.


Our Dean’s List students participate in this program, therefore we are certain that the program will prove helpful in enriching our students’ overall experience at CIS.
