About Orientation, Transition and Engagement

The Orientation, Transition and Engagement (OTE) team provides students with a broad range of co-curricular involvement opportunities and supports their active participation in campus life, starting from their orientation to the University, right through until graduation and beyond. This includes orientation and transition, graduate and alumni programming, and the Co-Curricular Record. We provide programming and resources for staff, faculty and students.


Mentorship and Peer Programs

The Mentorship and Peer Programs (MAPP) team provides training, professional development, programming, events, and resources to students involved in academic, wellness, community engagement, and mentorship peer programs. We provide a central hub for student colleagues, staff and faculty who promote student success.


Clubs and Leadership Development

The Clubs and Leadership Development (CALD) team supports students who are in formal leadership positions (clubs, groups, representative leaders), those looking to get involved in leadership opportunities, and staff who support student leaders. The team has resources focussed on skill development, leadership development, self-awareness, team dynamics, and communication and conflict resolution, and we deliver these materials through training sessions and in collaboration with initiatives across the Division of Student Life. We also provide space for recognized clubs and groups at the 21 Sussex Club House and a drop-in lounge for student leaders.
