LAMP Banner

The Leadership and Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP) provides an inclusive and welcoming community for all students. Students can request an upper year Peer Mentor from their Faculty or Program and are kept up-to-date on events, programs, and academic deadlines throughout the year. LAMP Mentors provide academic and social support to offer a successful transition to university life.

Sign-up for a LAMP first year mentor!

You can now sign-up to have a first year mentor in your faculty for the 2019/2020 school year. Our mentors will host programming through the year which includes professor meet and greets, study sessions for common courses, and intent to register support. Your mentor will communicate with you weekly and share valuable resources to ensure a smooth transition academically into university.

We will begin matching mentees with mentors in late-August!

If you are interested in requesting a LAMP 1.0 mentor, please sign-up here.
