  • Upon registration, attend at least 75% of their weekly mentorship group meetings which are facilitated by Head or Graduate Fellow student leaders who are employed through our office.

    • HALP stands for Health and Wellness; Academic Skill-Building; Life Skills; and Professional Development. Each SIFP workshop fulfills one of the HALP letters, which will be indicated on the SIFP digest that is sent out weekly to students
    • Complete a Fellows Reflection after attending each event through the google form provided through the mentor collective online platform
  • Engage in 1:1 mentorship with designated program mentors, including Dean Khristina Gonzalez and PAI staff, Residential College staff, and Faculty and Staff Fellows.

  • Provide mentorship to future generations of SIFP Fellows.

In order to remain in good standing with SIFP each semester, students must find HALP by going to at least 4 SIFP workshops that fulfill one of each of the letters in HALP and they must attend at least 75% of their mentorship or accountability group meetings in a semester.
