Chroma Project

If you are a first year student and would like to be connected with a faculty or graduate student mentor who can provide academic and/or cultural support during your first year of university, become a part of the Chroma Project!

The Chroma Project aims to:

  • Promote academic success
  • Foster meaningful relationships with university faculty, staff and graduate students
  • Develop coping strategies to assist with cultural transition
  • Build networks during university and beyond graduation

The time commitment is a minimum of 1 hour per month to meet with your mentor/mentee.

This project is supported by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities funding for First Generation Students.
