International Mentor Program

Become involved with mentoring other international students.

Each year the Office of International Student Services selects exceptional international students to lead as International Peer Mentors. Undergraduate and graduate students are selected and paired with new international student mentees. Our mentors are each unique and diverse in their own way, studying various majors and coming from countries all over the world.


Mission

The International Mentor Program at Adelphi University is designed to have international student leaders serve as peer mentors and guide new international students through key adjustment periods. Incoming students may experience culture shock, homesickness, and have trouble building new support systems in the United States. During this time, our peer mentors provide relevant information, opportunities, and programming to aid in their transition and help with student success inside and outside of the classroom.


Goals

  • To gain the necessary knowledge of Adelphi University services and opportunities
  • To develop meaningful relationships with the campus community including administration, faculty and peers
  • To develop and implement a program designed with a global perspective for the cultural community
  • To develop students with the tangible leadership skills necessary for student success
  • To create a support system that empowers students to reach their potential and step out of their comfort zones
  • To bring the diverse Adelphi University community together and have fun while doing so!
