What Are the Goals of the CSSH Virtual Mentoring Program?

Virtual Mentors serve as a key contact for CSSH N.U.in and NUStart students during their first semester. The goal of the CSSH Virtual Mentor Program is to help N.U.in and NUStart students form a connection with the College of Social Sciences & Humanities before they arrive on campus in January. CSSH Virtual Mentors will communicate and meet virtually with Fall 2021 N.U.in and NUStart students throughout the semester and discuss topics such as academic engagement, registration, and transition to Boston.

    This summer, NUin students will come to the Boston campus for Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) before they head off to their various NUin sites. We would like to have CSSH NUin mentors present at these PDOs to engage with these students and answer questions that they have before they go abroad for thier first semester. This opportunity is optional, but strongly recommended if you are in the Boston area during Summer 1. Please indicate below which PDO dates you are available to attend:
  • If you did not participate in the NUin or NUStart program, please just answer what kinds of things you think will help NUin students feel more connected to campus.
