Leadership & Academic Mentorship Program
The Leadership and Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP) provides an inclusive and welcoming community for all students. Students can request an upper year Peer Mentor from their faculty or program and are kept up-to-date on events, programs, and academic deadlines throughout the year. LAMP Mentors provide academic and social support to offer a successful transition to university life.
LAMP is a university-run group lead by upper year students, designed to help you make connections with other students, have a student mentor, learn about the services at Western, and build lasting friendships. LAMP mentors are high caliber student leaders representing all faculties who are carefully selected and extensively trained. For all LAMP Leaders, they have personal experience and are sensitive to the challenges faced by students.
LAMP is divided into 3 main areas:
- LAMP 1.0 is designed to support first-year students
- LAMP 2.0 is designed to support second-year students
- The LAMP Leadership program is designed for first-year students and allows them to participate in community engaged learning initiatives.
