Students to Students Mentoring

Students to Students Nurture and Mentorship Programme was launched by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olive Mugenda on 14th November, 2009 to supplement the already existing staff to students’ mentorship.

In this programme students in second and third years of study are recruited and trained as peer mentors to mentor other students. For one to be a student mentor they must have a student mentor and a staff mentor and be willing to mentor at least three students mentees. Recruitment takes place twice in February and October every year.

So far, the programme has trained 597 students as students’ mentors who have mentored 1,791 students’ mentees. There is also a Policy and Code of Conduct and Ethics for students’ mentors.
