Student Mentor Program, (SMP) is a Program within the IIT Bombay Student Community, with the primary objective of enabling constructive and positive interaction, guidance and mentorship of junior students by senior students.
Mentoring is a particular form of relationship designed to provide personal and professional support to an individual. The mentor is generally more experienced than the mentee and makes use of that experience in a facilitative way to support the development of the mentee. The mentoring relationship provides a developmental opportunity for both parties and can thus be of mutual benefit. In a nutshell, a student mentor's role may be perceived to be facilitative, supportive and developmental for the student Community in general and the first year students in particular.
SMP has two wings: ISMP and D-AMP. The Institute Student Mentorship Program, (ISMP) aims at developing a smooth transition to campus life for every new entrant to an academic Program at IIT Bombay. Department Academic Mentorship Program, (D-AMP) is active across all departments at IITB, with the primary aim of helping out students who are underperforming academically.
