Chicago Quarter Mentors (CQMs) are an essential part of the
Chicago Quarter Program and serve as a resource to new students through their transition to DePaul University. More specifically, Chicago Quarter Mentors work with professional staff to deliver the Common Hour component of the Chicago Quarter course. Chicago Quarter Mentors work collaboratively with faculty and professional staff members to plan, deliver, and facilitate the broader curriculum of the assigned course. Chicago Quarter Mentors also connect with new students as a peer resource, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Please note: CQM and Staff Professional job duties are subject to change as DePaul University responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will follow city/state guidelines.
Chicago Quarter Mentors begin working in the spring quarter and are in the role until the end of the fall quarter. During the fall quarter, student mentors are expected to work 6-7 hours/week.
