Mentor & Mentee Initiative

In a proactive effort to support and guide TIET students starting in their first year itself, the office of DOSA started 'Student Mentorship Program' with 2016 batch students, aiming at promoting academic success and well-being. The main objectives of 'Student Mentorship Programme' include:

  • Retain new students by helping them to become more familiar with the TIET culture, and how to accomplish their studies.
  • Help current students grow and develop professionally as TIET students.
  • Foster a cooperative network among the students by helping those meet and network with all Professors.
  • Increase the flow of accurate and timely information about TIET resources available at campus.
  • Contribute to student morale, motivation, and a sense of community.
  • Create a culture that fosters creativity and innovative thinking.

The Programme enables selected faculty to serve as mentors and to remain in close and consistent contact with the students (batch of 25 each) throughout their period of study on campus. The students get a faculty mentor in the very first year itself, as a lot of fresh entrants, struggle with the volume of work involved in their first-year because it is different from the work they were used to at school. The mentors along with Thapar Institute Counseling Cell (TICC), Centre for Training & Development (CTD) and Wardens of hostels emphasize in coordinating and providing support for academic success, identity development, emotional health, leadership development, belonging, and community consciousness.
