Transition Support

Being a college student can be a difficult balancing act. It is easy to get weighed down with the pressures of academics, social life, and choosing a major and career. If personal problems are piled on top of these pressures, you can feel overwhelmed and lose your balance. The Psychosocial Support Services are here to help you:

• identify some of the ways you may cope with problems

• clarify differences between effective and ineffective coping strategies

• recognize signs of distress in yourself and others

• learn ways to help yourself and others deal effectively with problems

• provide information about resources on campus and in the community.

For any assistance, contact the Psychosocial and Support Services Officer:

Mentorship

The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University assists in connecting mentors with mentees.

Each MasterCard Foundation Scholar at Makerere University will be assigned a peer mentor with whom they are required to meet once a week for at least the first semester of their first year.

These mentors will offer their students psychosocial support and can provide advice on a wide range of relevant topics. In addition Makerere University Colleges and Departments offer academic mentorship to all students. The mode of mentorship is tailored to the needs and interests of the Scholar.
