Global Lions Mentor Program

Global Lions Mentor Program

A mentor is a voluntary guide or advisor who shares wisdom, skills, and experience with a less experienced person. It is an exchange that can make a real impact on someone else’s life.

The objective of the Global Lions Mentor Program (GLM) is to support international students in their transition to Penn State Harrisburg and to encourage community involvement in the transition process.

All new international students in their first semester are eligible for this program. Interested students will be put in contact with two Global Lion Mentors (American or international student volunteers).

Students can apply to participate before they arrive to Penn State Harrisburg (The International Student Support Office will send the application when new students are granted acceptance).

Mentor recruitment will take place via e-mail invitation at the end of each semester.

Questions related to GLM should be directed to Dorca Kisare-Ressler, Internaitonal Student Adviser GLM Coordinator, at or Wendy Moynihan, Program Specialist, at
