INTL Mentorship Program

The INTL Mentorship Program matches emerging and experienced leaders in the Canadian international education sector. Mentors and mentees connect regularly over eight months and receive support and guidance from the INTL Mentorship Team.
The Mentorship Program will be accepting candidate applications in 2025.
  • Mentors are experienced leaders who have been involved in International Education for more than 7 years.
  • Mentees are emerging leaders have been involved in International Education for less than 7 years.
  • Members who have been involved in International Education for 4-7 years may participate as both a mentor and/or a mentee.
  • Available to individuals at CBIE Member Institutions.
Program structure & obligations once admitted to the program:
  • Be an active participant by supporting your Mentee through their professional and personal goals from April to November (for Mentors).
  • Mentees must express their goals for the year, expectations of the mentorship program, and areas of interest for conversation with their mentor.
  • Connect with your Mentee/Mentor once a month (commitment of approximately 2-3 hours per month).
  • Respond to a mid-term short survey.
  • Respond to a program evaluation questionnaire once your commitment is finished.

Selection & Matching:

    • National representation inclusive of geography, language and sector experience will be given priority in selecting program participants
