We engage student mentors to work on our array of equity programs, and with our partnering schools, community organisations, TAFE and other VET providers.
Our equity initiatives requiring mentors include:
- school outreach activities, such as Uni-Reach and LEAD
- outreach programs for adult learners
- outreach activities for students with disabilities, such as TEE and Uni-Vision
- support for students transitioning to university, such as Uni-Key.
Becoming a student equity mentor gives you the opportunity to:
- enhance your leadership skills
- develop communication skills
- become a positive role model for current and prospective students
- gain experience leading a small group
- draw on your life experience to provide support
- contribute to the Griffith community.
If you’d like to become a Student Equity Mentor, please complete the expression of interest form and tell us about your suitability for our initiatives. We aim to recruit mentors from backgrounds similar to students participating in our programs, as relevant life experience is a rich source of inspiration and information.
As part of the recruitment process, successful applicants must complete our one-day Student Equity Mentor training. This training ensures you’re familiar with our mentoring requirements and opportunities across all programs. There are program-specific briefings in addition to the general training.
Our next round of Mentor training will be held on:
- Logan campus - to be advised
- Nathan campus - to be advised
- Gold Coast campus - to be advised
