Mentoring connects well-trained upper-year students with first-year and transfer students to help them transition into university and connects graduate students and alumni with upper-level students to guide and provide advice about post-graduation career choices.

Course Representative Program

Course Representatives are well-trained students who make class announcements to encourage their classmates to engage in their own personal and academic success, liaise with classmates and the course director to improve students' learning experiences, and organize unfacilitated study groups to promote healthy study strategies.

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (P.A.S.S.)

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (P.A.S.S.) involve upper level academically successful students who facilitate study sessions in courses that are known to be historically challenging.  PASS leaders have extensive training on how to help students strengthen their study skills and build academic success.  PASS sessions are available several times a week.

Peer Tutoring

Free, one-on-one academic service provided by well-trained upper-level undergraduate students in the Faculty of Health.

Peer Tutors help tutees understand difficult course-based concepts by facilitating the session with various learning strategies.

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness at Calumet and Stong Colleges brings health education and promotion to the College communities. As members of the YorkU Health Education and Promotion Peer Team, peers based out of the colleges support events, health promotion tabling, and much more.

Leadership Exploration and Development (LEADwith purpose)

Faculty of Health students and Peer Leaders can develop or strengthen their leadership and citizenship skills by partaking in weekly hands-on training workshops.

Career Exploration

Career Exploration is designed to help students explore academic choices and future careers. Whether you are thinking about graduate school, professional schools such as medicine, or considering pursuing a working career path in Canada or internationally this program is here to help you.

Agents of Change

Regardless of your program of study, each of you is a part of something larger by being a member of the Faculty of Health. Each year, the Faculty graduates 2000 students who are “Agents of Change”. During your time at York University, you will develop a set of attributes that will contribute to your capacity to transform ideas, change policies, systems, structures and practices to positively affect health.

Indigenous Circle

Calumet College has had a long and unique connection with the Indigenous community. Both colleges are committed to advocating for priorities that enhance Indigenous health and wellness, engaging the Indigenous community and celebrating Indigenous heritage.
