On May 29, a group of UNIST students gathered at the access road to UNIST to engage in external volunteering activities, as part of the Ulju Industry 4.0 (i4.0) Mentoring program.
The Ulju i4.0 Mentoring is a tiered mentoring program that links middle school students in Ulju County with UNIST students. Two middle school participants (mentees) are matched with a university participant (mentor) who are currently enrolled at UNIST. Middle school students will have the opportunity to discuss their academic progress and career perspectives with their Mentors, benefiting from their knowledge and expertise.
On this day, participants were given two options to choose from, either by planting flowers across campus or taking part in the organized walking activities.
As the day arrived, approximately 15 students teamed up to plant flowers in designated landscaping beds across campus, including the access road to UNIST near the symbolic landmark of UNIST, as well as the driveway to Faculty Residence. Other participants also volunteered their time to participate in walking on Ganwaljae, Ulju County. These activities were in strict compliance with the current social distancing and hygiene rules.
Ulju i4.0 Mentoring has been promoted as part of the Ulju Future Education i4.0 Campus, which is being carried out jointly by Ulju County and UNIST. Ulju County also plans to implement other programs, such as ‘Ulju, The Dream Campus’, ‘Ulju i4.0 Mentoring’, ‘S&T Career Experience’, ‘Hi-Leader Camp’, ‘A.I. 4.0 Studio’ and ‘Science Mentoring,’ aiming to foster creative and convergent talents that will lead the future.
