Student Mentorship Committee


The goal of the Student Mentorship Committee (SMC) is to aid the work of the Mentorship Program. It develops guidelines on transnational mentoring and assists with the prudent management of mentors who volunteer to support BHER students throughout their studies in the programs of their choice.  The Committee reports annually to the BHER Team on issues around mentorship.
