SMP initiative

We are excited to announce that we are entering into a partnership with the Student Mentorship Program (SMP) at Roorkee. SMP assigns a student mentor to every incoming student. Our goal is to assign an alumni mentor to every incoming student as well. 


About AMP

AMP connects students to alumni. It has received very positive feedback from both students and mentors. We have about 200 mentors who have volunteered to help. However the reach of AMP has been limited, so far due to various factors. Students might hesitate reaching out to senior alumni, or due to AMP’s limited presence on campus.

About SMP

Student Mentorship Program assigns a mentor (a 3rd or 4th year student) to all 1st year students. It bridges the communication gap between senior and first-year students by providing an environment for healthy discussion, guidance and one to one counseling. It is one of the largest on-campus student initiatives and I think Roorkee is the only IIT to offer this program.

Since SMP and AMP have complementary goals, this is a win-win partnership.
