CORE Mentorship Program

The CORE (Creating Opportunities for Racial Equity) Mentorship Program aims to create invaluable mentorship opportunities for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) students at the University of Guelph, and helps students build meaningful connections, a strong social and professional network, and a sense of community on campus and in Guelph broadly.

The CORE Mentorship Program pairs BIPOC students in second year and above with a BIPOC faculty or staff member at the University of Guelph (UofG) or a community professional in an area of interest to the student. Mentoring relationships established through CORE are intended to support academic success and retention, and social engagement and networking by helping student participants navigate barriers and challenges they might experience and build skills that will support them in achieving their academic and professional goals.

We want you to have a successful and fulfilling relationship mentorship relationship, and are here to support you in doing so. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback throughout this process, or need additional support, please contact Alexis Charles (she/her), Coordinator of Cultural Diversity Programs at We’d love to hear from you.
