Gordon Cressy Award

Deadline: MONDAY, JANUARY 19TH, 9 AM

If you are a student who intends to graduate in June 2015; you have extensive volunteer, extra-curricular accomplishments on campus; and you have a CGPA of 2.70, you may want to look at the Cressy Awards. Students may be nominated by different sectors of the University – by the Colleges, Hart House, the Faculty of Arts & Science, and so forth.

If you are interested in the award and your volunteer contributions were largely focused around Innis, know that you can be put forward as an Innis nominee. If your volunteerism was not specifically Innis-based, you can consult with the relevant department or office to see if you may be considered as one of their nominees.

The official deadline for submission is January 23, as the website indicates, but anyone wishing to be considered an Innis nominee must submit a CV and a completed nomination form (with a statement) by Monday, January 19th, 9 AM, either o the Innis Office of the Dean of Students or the Innis Registrar’s Office.

The application and the nomination process as well as links to forms and guidelines can be found at the U of T Page.

The Student Voice Project (SVP) is a 3 day program, hosted by the New College Office of Student Life and Leadership (SLL) in collaboration with UofT Health and Wellness where students will explore the topic of mental health.
Over the 3 day project, students will learn from mental health professionals, share lived experiences, discuss mental health issues and realities on campus and produce unique zines. Guided by Peer Facilitators and Staff Administrators, students from all three campuses will come together to learn about mental health issues facing young people and the resources available to them here on campus and across the GTA.

This is an opportunity for your ideas to help foster understanding, open lines of communication, and build access. This is a chance for your voice to be heard! Students participating will gain skills in health research, design, as well as knowledge translation and promotion. This program will also be eligible for the co-curricular record.
This program is fully subsidized by New College Student Life and Leadership, and UofT Health and Wellness. Participation will be free-of-charge, and workshops will include lunches and snacks, materials and supplies, as well as transportation to and from UTM or UTSC as applicable.

2015 Governing Council Student Nominations

An effective way to enhance your overall student experience at the University of Toronto is to become involved in governance as an elected member of the Governing Council. Governors are collectively and individually stewards of the University and are asked to contribute to decisions that affect the University’s current and future achievements.

Students are eligible to serve if they are Canadian citizens and registered at the University for full-time or part-time study in a program that leads to a degree, post-secondary diploma or certificate. If you have previously served in a leadership role in a recognized campus group or a student society and wish to develop your skills further, this might be the next step for you in out-of-classroom experience as a student. But previous experience of this kind is not a requirement.

Nomination forms will be available at the U of T Governing Council site between 12:00 noon on Tuesday, January 6th and 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13th. Paper copies will be available in the Office of the Governing Council, Room 106, Simcoe Hall, 27 King’s College Circle.

Re-orientation: Paths Beyond Your POSt


Feeling a little lost on what to do after graduation? Paths Beyond your POST is a series of events to help 2nd year students find the pathways leading beyond their specialist, major and minor programs. This Faculty-wide event gives students an opportunity to get involved in workshops, information fairs and panel discussions on student leadership programs, research & exchange opportunities and graduate school and career options. These events help our students stay calm, cool, healthy and collected while taking advantage of all the academic and non-academic opportunities available.
