Request a Mentor

International Students:

 

Here at Global Ties, we are excited to welcome you to the Pitt family and introduce you to our Mentorship Program!

 

We understand that as an international student, you may have a lot of questions about Pitt and face some challenges in a new country. Many students find the transition process easier when they have someone supporting them. The GTMs are trained domestic and international students at Pitt who serve an experienced friend for you and will support you through your transition and answer any questions you have. By signing up to have a Global Ties Mentor, you will be contacted by one of our GTMs over the summer and will receive mentorship throughout the academic year if you wish! Your interactions with the GTMs will be very casual. In the past years, a lot of our GTMs have built long-term friendships with their mentees! 

 

You may request a Global Ties Mentor if you are a first-year or transfer international undergraduate student at the University of Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh Campus. If you do not meet these criteria, we invite you to join us for Global Ties events.  If you wish to sign-up for our mentorship program, please fill out a survey using this link: https://pitt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aW5uRswYTOtL90a 

 

Domestic Students with International Backgrounds:

 

Here at Global Ties, we are excited to welcome you to the Pitt family! We would like to introduce you to our Mentorship Program, which was previously offered only for the international students, but has been extended this year to domestic students (includes both U.S. Citizens and green card holders) under certain conditions.  

 

The GTMs are trained domestic and international students at Pitt who serve as an experienced friend for you and will support you through your transition and answer any questions you have. By signing up to have a Global Ties Mentor, you will be contacted by one of our GTMs over the summer and will receive mentorship throughout the academic year if you wish! Your interactions with the GTMs will be very casual. In the past years, and a lot of our GTMs have built long-term friendships with their mentees!

 

You may request a Global Ties Mentor if you are a first-year or transfer domestic student at the University of Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh Campus who lived in a foreign country and feel that you need someone to support you through your transition back to the U.S., or a recent immigrant to the United States. We understand that although you are a domestic student, you may still face similar challenges that the international students face when adjusting to life in the U.S. and at Pitt. If you wish to sign-up for our mentorship program, please fill out a survey using this link: https://pitt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3LeNCJHqtmTJkOi 

 

If you have any questions about our programs or completing the survey, please email KyoungAh Lee at Kyoungahlee@pitt.edu. We look forward to meeting you!
