“ Group Mentoring allows for students to find a community on campus and make new friends, all while learning how to better themselves on a personal and academic level.

The TMP 2019-20 welcome party, and the Black Grad Reception provided me with the chance to meet new people and be proud of my journey as a Black TMU student.”

"As a TMU student, one of the most impactful spaces in my undergraduate career was the Tri-Mentoring Program. I started working there as a second year student who was still settling in as an newcomer and my time there helped me grow to who I am today. The dedicated and passionate team at TMP, helped shape a community for me as a student staff and the space allowed me and other student staff to develop in different avenues of our lives. It was there that I met most of my current friends and also discovered many opportunities that were critical in my person and professional growth. I am glad to have been a part of TMP and for the fond memories I have of it."

“ Tri-Mentoring was such a large part of my schooling life at TMU, and the team became a second family to me. 

I truly believe that this program is such an integral part of student life, and the TMU community. I want all students to know that they have fantastic resources for community building and support at TMU, and Tri-mentoring can really provide you with an enriching student life experience.”

“Yet, what I remember most is witnessing a person discovering a part of themselves and slowly being comfortable in their own skin. It was a beautiful moment, and I was able to experience with a handful of wonderful individuals.”
