Peer Mentor awards

The Student Mentor Program is committed to ensuring that upper-year volunteer student Peer Mentors are aware of their value to the program and that their efforts are appreciated and recognized.

2018/2019 awards

Peer Mentor Awards, supported by the OCAD University Alumni Association and the Alumni Relations office, acknowledge those Peer Mentors who made outstanding contributions, supporting new and first-year students and helping build community, while adhering to the mandate of the program.

All Peer Mentors participating in the 2018 Student Mentor Program (May to November 2018) are eligible to be nominated for ONE of TWO awards (valued at $500 each). Successful candidates will be announced at an annual appreciation event in March 2019. Nominators will also be invited.

Selection committee

  • Vice-Provost, Students & International
  • Campus Life Coordinator, Student Success Programs
  • Manager, Student Communications & Campus Community

Nominations

Student Mentees who feel they significantly benefited from connection with their Peer Mentor are encouraged to highlight their experience. The chance to have meaningful, ongoing engagement with a Peer Mentor familiar with OCAD U would have been particularly powerful. We'd love to hear from you!
