In a proactive effort to support and guide TIET students starting in their first year itself, the office of DOSA started 'Student Mentorship Program' with 2016 batch students, aiming at promoting academic success and well-being. The main objectives of 'Student Mentorship Programme' include:
The Programme enables selected faculty to serve as mentors and to remain in close and consistent contact with the students (batch of 25 each) throughout their period of study on campus. The students get a faculty mentor in the very first year itself, as a lot of fresh entrants, struggle with the volume of work involved in their first-year because it is different from the work they were used to at school. The mentors along with Thapar Institute Counseling Cell (TICC), Centre for Training & Development (CTD) and Wardens of hostels emphasize in coordinating and providing support for academic success, identity development, emotional health, leadership development, belonging, and community consciousness.
