Student Advising

MITT Student Advisors are the best resource on campus for future and current students to talk to about their academic and personal plan. Because advisors work with all categories of students in all of our programs, they have a huge amount of knowledge and experience to share on what works - and what doesn't - when studying at MITT.  

MITT student advisors know how to help students:

  • Identify and meet their education and career goals
  • Work through academic or personal issues
  • Create realistic time management and financial plans
  • Make informed decisions and know all of their options

In addition to general advising topics common to all students, MITT advisors have specific areas of interest or focus:

Indigenous Student Advisor - Ryan Bruyere

  • Helps Indigenous students with administrative tasks - program/sponsor applications, funding, awards and bursaries
  • Guidance on creating a strong study plan that balances academics with personal committments 
  • Connects Indigenous students to each other, to their program areas, and to the campus community

Accessibility Services Advisor - Kayla Hoskins

  • Coordinates accessibility supports and administrative tasks for students with a permanent or temporary disability
  • Helps students access government grants and funding for tuition, services, and equipment
  • Works with students, families and MITT instructors to develop a comprehensive education plan
  • Advocates and liaises with sponsors and other off-campus accessibility supports

Learning Support Advisor - Grace Leduc

  • Helps students become more efficient and effective in preparing for class, assignments, and tests
  • Program-specific coaching and mentoring in the areas of reading comprehension, technical language and math
  • Facilitates group study opportunities and exam preparation workshops

Student Social Worker/Counsellor

MITT's Social Worker/Counsellor, Melanie Leslie, helps students in similar ways as a student advisor, but is qualified to provide students with more in-depth supports to help ensure success while studying.

MITT's Social Worker/Counsellor knows how to help students with:

  • Their overall mental health including dealing with stress, anxiety and depression
  • Family issues and healthy relationships
  • Accessing off-campus health and social services
  • Self-confidence, loneliness, suicide prevention 

Student Advisors and our Social Worker/Counsellor are available through drop-in or appointment at the Henlow, 7 Fultz and Pembina campuses, or by phone or email. Please contact Student Services at 204-989-6512, or email studentservices@mitt.ca.
