Project AIM

任务

Project AIM is a peer-mentoring program that promotes student success by supporting student engagement, community-building, personal development, and retention of first year and second year international students.  ​

​Through a 社会 and intellectual learning environment beyond the classroom, Project AIM supports student success with five learning pillars: Acclimation to the University, Leadership/Career Development, Diversity-股本-Inclusion Awareness/Appreciation, Academic Achievement, and an increased Sense of Belonging.

​Programs and Services

  • Individual/Group Interactions with Mentors: Peer mentors offer consistent academic, 社会, 文化, and personal support to their mentees, including practice speaking English via all possible communication channels and in-person meetings. 
  • Connections with Peers: Peer mentors invite mentees and their friends to get together regularly for networking and 社会 expansion, which help build a stronger sense of belonging at St. 约翰的. 
  • Academic Success and Career/Leadership Development: Peer mentors offer individual coaching and guidance to mentees on academic achievements, career preparation, and leadership development utilizing campus resources.
  • Diversity-股本-Inclusion Awareness/Appreciation: Peer mentors invite mentees to participate in on-campus, cross-文化 events, diversity and equity training, and DiverCity activities in New York City, which celebrates the diversity and inclusion of our students and our nation.
  • Vincentian 任务 and Social Action: Peer mentors and mentees conduct community service projects as a group to experience the Vincentian tradition of serving the poor and taking action to better society.
  • Immigration Regulations Workshops: Peer mentors and mentees with F-1 or J-1 status are invited to immigration regulations workshops presented by the University international student advisors and immigration attorneys, who discuss CPT, 选择, H1B, Traveling, Maintaining Status, and other updated immigration regulations and policies related to SEVP and SEVIS.
