What is KAMP?

The King's Academic Mentoring Program (KAMP) is a student-led, peer-to-peer mentoring initiative which acts as a University 101 for incoming first-year students. KAMP mentors offer personal and academic support for topics such as health and wellness, goal setting, and extracurricular activities, as well as connecting students with campus resources, and empowering students to become autonomous, connected, and competent university students.

KAMP Operates on 3 Core Principles:

1. Enhance: help students develop a sense of autonomy and competency

2. Foster: build relationships between students, faculty, and alumni

3. Encourage: promote collaborative learning experiences that allow students to gain real world knowledge and skills

What is a KAMP Mentor?

KAMP mentors are academically successful upper-year (3rd, 4th, or 5th year) students who are committed to helping their mentees navigate university life.

KAMP mentors will keep contact with their mentees throughout the entire academic school year through OWL forums, emails, texting, or other social media methods. Mentors will also meet one-on-one and in group settings with their mentees to develop goals and check-in on progress.

KAMP Events & Initiatives:

KAMP hosts a variety of academic workshops and social events to help students gain confidence on campus.
