What is “WEMENTOR”?

This is a mentorship program started in Fall 2017 by GradSWE UIC to give the students the opportunity to meet, mentor, and guide the incoming fellow graduate/undergraduate students. It is a one-semester commitment which requires you to be a point of contact and help another student acclimatizing to the new environment.

Become a Mentor:

You can be a mentor for the new incoming students or other returning students that seek for help regarding their courses, housing, books, and many more issues that we all faced once we were new to UIC. Fill out this form to apply to be a mentor for Spring 2018 semester.

Become a Mentee:

If you are a new graduate or undergraduate student at UIC, we are here to help you. Just fill out this form to apply to be a mentee for Spring 2018 semester and find the mentor from the volunteers that best match your needs.


  • Improve your communication and leadership skills.
  • Have your name posted as the mentor/mentee of the semester upon your selection at the end of the semester on the UIC SWE website and receive a letter of recommendation from your mentee/mentor at the end of the semester.
  • Opportunity to apply for various Mentorship Scholarships with your strong resume and recommendation.
