Sisters Mentoring Programs
There are a number of mentoring programs available for women in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Also, feel free to refer to the mentoring tips and other mentoring resources to gain more insight on what mentoring is.
The Undergraduate Sisters Program matches first year students with sophomore, junior, or senior students with the goal of strengthening bonds between women in the CS community. The Big Sister/Little Sister relationship serves as an excellent way for first years to get to connect with someone whom they can go to for friendship, advice, and support. Big Sisters have an opportunity to mentor others and share their experiences and perceptions of computer science.
The Grad/Undergrad Sisters Program matches junior and senior undergraduate students with graduate students in SCS. The focus is on building community within the School of Computer Science, and undergrads do not need to be considering grad school in order to sign up. Big/Little Sisters can share their questions, concerns, and advice about life after college, applying to grad school, and more.
Graduate Tea Hours
The Graduate Tea Hours allow graduate students to connect in an informal setting. This program takes the form of regular tea hours and occasional panel discussions. The tea hours are a flexible opportunity for those in need of advice, those seeking friendship, those willing to give advice, or those wanting to share a friendly smile.
