Role of SII

Being an SII, you will serve as a leader and a peer mentor for new students.  This year, most of you will be leading a group of 10 new students by yourself and your primary role is as follows:

  1. Leader of a group of 12 new students to participate in a series of CEDARS induction activities;
  2. Facilitator in the goal setting activities and interactive activities in High Table;
  3. Moderator of a dialogue session between speakers and your teammates in the ‘Inspirational Activities’;
  4. Act as the Content Specialist in the ‘University Adjustment IG Challenge’; and
  5. Peer mentor of your teammates from September to December 2020.

Time Commitment

This year, most activities of the CEDARS Induction Programme will be held virtually via Zoom. Though you will only be required to facilitate and moderate your own group’s goal setting session and inspirational activities session, we will only inform you of your group’s assigned timeslots after 24 August.  We therefore require your full commitment of the following timeslots at this stage:
