And that’s a wrap! First ECON-nection mentorship program concludes

Monday, January 17, 2022

Our Student Outreach Coordinator for Fall 2021, Yana Tiwari, presents Vicky Chen with a W Store gift card in recognition of her enthusiastic participation as a mentor to 2A Economics students
The end of the Fall term in 2021 also marked the conclusion of the department’s first ever mentorship program for new Economics majors. The ECON-nection mentorship program connects 2A Economics students, who are in the first term of their studies as an Economics major, with upper year Economics students as their guide and friendly colleagues. The mentorship program allows students to build relationships with their peers, professors, and department staff, and introduces students to academic, career and student life supports. But best of all, led by their mentors, students have a space to make friends amongst their peers, providing ample opportunities for study groups to form, co-op advice to be shared and meaningful connections within the department to be developed.
