...for First Year, Exchange and Transfer International Students Entering in September of 2013
At the heart of the mentorship model, the mentors collaborate to build their knowledge of international student issues and different cultures, and to develop their mentoring skills. This will enable mentors to be aware of different cultural contexts, and therefore, be able to best guide new international students, and to encourage their protégés to share their concerns, and to ask relevant questions.
April 8th – 12th
April 15th, 16th
Each Mentor will create their personal profile that will be used to match their experiences and interests with those of incoming international undergraduates. Each mentor will be matched to eight to twelve incoming international students based on shared academic and extracurricular interests. Mentors will establish a relationship with their "mentees" over e-mail, and will assist them with any concerns they might have prior to arrival on campus.

Mentors will welcome incoming international students to Dartmouth College and help them settle into their residence hall rooms.
Mentors will assist the International Student Programs Office-OPAL in the planning and delivery of International Orientation, and will serve as leaders and facilitators for some sessions organized for international students, and meals organized for internationals.
Fall and Winter Terms 2013 -2014:
Mentors will continue to meet with their protégés on a weekly basis when possible.
Mentors will pair up, and each pair will conduct one of five programs for the fall or winter terms.
Each mentor will write up brief reports on the progress of his/her mentees, one report each at the end of fall and winter terms.
Mentors are volunteers, but will receive a stipend to help defray the expense of meals due to the early arrival of the group.
