Baruch Conversation Partners Program


The orientation also known as the General Interest Meeting(GIM) is mandatory for members every time you apply. Everyone is required to do the orientation (even if you attended it before, you must go again). 

As a CPP member, you are committing to meeting your partner six times this semester (meetups should be evenly spaced throughout the semester).  All members who wish to have proof of participation MUST fill out their timesheet in a timely manner (it must be submitted to CPP 48 hours after each meeting with your partner). We will not accept late time sheets or time sheets indicating 6 consecutive days of meet-ups or meet-ups that all take place at the end of the semester. All falsely recorded time sheets will be investigated and you will not be provided with proof of Attendance/Participation nor will you receive a CPP Certificate.
