New College Arbor Award Winners 2023

Jonathan Chen was honored with a 2023 Arbor Award, in recognition of his outstanding and enduring contributions to the University of Toronto. Following his extraordinary experience in the New College Career Mentorship Program, Jonathan returned to volunteer his time with the program as a mentor. In this capacity, Jonathan helps students learn more about the application process, navigating law school, and working as a lawyer.


“I cannot stress how important mentorship is to me.  My New College Mentorship Program mentor opened up many doors for me and allowed me to meet professionals from various industries at an early stage.  Those experiences lifted my confidence as I entered the workforce.  It is a pleasure to be able to give back and be a resource for students forging their paths.”
