Priorities:UNIVERSIDAD TECNOLÓGICA DEL URUGUAY (UTEC) STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
Peer to peer advising
This project is designed to guide freshmen along their University immersion by forming groups of advanced students who will work together on a specific area of action.
Milton Lopez and Sebastian Calvermater are going to be in charge of this project.
Students and faculty members who volunteer to take part in this project and become students’ advisors must have the ability to empathize with students and have fluent communication skills.
Each volunteer will join a sub-group based on their interests and experience, being passionate and knowledgeable about their area of action.
Each sub-group will have a leader that will respond to Milton and Sebastián. Leaders will give guidance to the members of each group and will be the connection between freshmen and advisors, assigning a mentor according to the student’s needs, holding a well-organized schedule.
Deepen the sense of unity and belonging to the institution by creating a student ID, and give students even more benefits by attending UTEC.
Natalia Suarez and Irina Capdevila are going to be in charge of this project.
The UTEC ID will be the way of identifying students at campus and control access to the different areas and laboratories.
Benefits of having the ID will be further implemented, a few ideas that have been considered are: access to local public transport and housing, services discounts such as cinema or concert tickets, bookstores, restaurants, coffee shops.
This ID will be more helpful to other parts if our university that share building with other schools or high schools. It will help another problem that we recently detected, people there finds it very hard to tell apart UTEC’s students from other institutions’ students.
