Applications for the 2019-2020 Mentorship Cohort are now open! Whether you are new to CS or have a few internships under your belt, you would be a wonderful asset to our incoming cohort. We believe that having a community support system will shape your education and your career for the better!
If accepted into the 2019-2020 Mentorship Cohort you will be invited to our Kick Off Party, Saturday October 12, from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at Parkway North in the Smith Memorial Student Union. Here the pairings will meet, have lunch (on us, of course), play games and do a scavenger hunt to help new students get to know the PSU campus.
Prior to the Kick Off Party, accepted mentors are required to attend a training event to give our mentors the tools and training they’ll need to be great mentors! The Mentors Only Training is before the kick off party from 10:00 am to 11:00 am also at Parkway North in the Smith Memorial Student Union. Coffee and a light breakfast will be served.

The Mentorship Program is growing and we want you to be a part of it! If you’re interested in being a mentee or a mentor fill out the questionnaire by January 24th to be considered for an open spot in the program.
The Mentorship Program aims to foster the growth of incoming CS students and to continue our mission of making the department at Portland State a safe, inclusive space to learn. Out mottoe “we belong” motivates us to encourage new and returning students to be a part of our movement by growing our community and inspiring others to do the same.
With the WiCS Mentorship Program, new and returning students can join to either become a mentor to students new to the PSU CS culture or to simply be a mentee who seeks guidance and friendship while embarking on their new adventure.
