Objective of Counseling/ Mentoring Cell AISSMSCOP:
Beginning one’s life at the University Level normally involves a very important transition. There are opportunities to be taken and challenges to be met, all while adjusting to change. We at the AISSMSCOP understand that everyone needs to be listened to. We want to be there for students who need a listening ear. So, never be afraid to say what you feel to the Mentors.
Mentor is someone with a specific set of skills, knowledge and significant experience provides free support to the one in need through listening, giving constructive feedback, and provoking reflection.
The power of mentoring
If you don’t have a mentor, you need one. Why? Because to have a mentor is the most important thing you can do to set yourself up for success in life. There is plenty of research to back it up. For example, people who have a mentor are:
- 55% more likely to complete university
- 130% more likely to end up in leadership positions in their careers
- 56% more likely to volunteer in the community
- 45% less likely to develop a depressive disorder
Mentoring has been linked to higher self-esteem, self-confidence, stronger relationships with family and peers, and improved interpersonal skills. If you have a mentor, you’re more likely to succeed at work. Get a mentor and be a mentor! You’re missing out if you don’t.
The benefits of mentoring are now so well-established that back in January 2017, then-President Barack Obama declared that month “Mentoring Month.”
