Progress On Activity
We have an established undergraduate mentorship program, but it needs revamping, ensuring that activities are well aligned to the goal.
Students are not always aware of the benefits of mentoring.
Mentors and mentees need an orientation and training.
Activities need to be more intentionally planned with more formal structure.
