Join an exclusive academic community and gain access to resources and support through the First in the Family Peer-Mentor Program.

The St. George First in the Family mentoring program is part of the tri-campus First Generation Retention and Success Project, an initiative funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. In addition to our partners at Student Affairs and Services at UTM, the Office of Student Affairs at UTSC, and the Colleges on the St. George campus, the program is a collaborative initiative between the Division of Student Life Programs and Services, the Faculty of Arts and Science and Woodsworth College.
