INTRODUCING: JAMES AN
 



Hey Innis Citizens! My name is James, and I’m a third year student in Human Biology and Psychology. This year I have been given the opportunity to run InSIGHT, our College’s peer mentorship program. New incoming students in InSIGHT are paired up with an upper year in their same program of study, and our team of trained mentors provide academic and personal support to them throughout the year.

InSIGHT Goals: We strive to further the sense of community and belonging at our College, by ensuring all students feel welcomed and integrated into our Innis family. As a part of the Office of Student Life, we run social events (free food) and workshops to aid our students and connect them with each other. Through these tight-knit student networks, we can empower one another to reach our limitless potential. 

JOIN US: Please send an email to innis.insight@gmail.com if you would like to be involved!

Have a wonderful week and stay warm,
James
