Are you interested in gaining skills that you cannot get in a lecture? Are you looking to explore new and exciting leadership opportunities within Innis College? If your answer is “YES”, then Innis’ Leadership Committee is the right place for you. Some of you may have heard of our Leadership series entitled: In2U. For those of you who have not heard of it, get ready for something great! In2U offers three core workshops over the course of the academic year.
The first session is called In2U: Pathways to Leadership and is intended for those looking to gain, brush-up or polish-up on their leadership skills. Our second workshop is called In2U: Students in Leadership and aims to help students achieve their leadership potential within and external to the College. The third and final component is called In2U: Transition to Leadership where newly elected, appointed, volunteered or hired student leaders have the opportunity to meet and learn from current student leaders. In addition to these three workshops, students will also have the opportunity to practice many of their newly-learned skills through a series of networking seminars known as Back-Pack to Briefcase (B2B), hosted by the Innis Alumni Office.
Nomination forms due in the Residence Office:
FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2015 at 12 Noon
The Innis Residence Leadership Award is awarded to an outstanding full-time, first-year undergraduate student living in the Innis Residence who is nominated by his/her peers as an emerging leader.
Nomination Forms are now available on the Residence Facebook page or downloaded from: innislife.utoronto.ca
The deadline to apply for any Innis College Leadership awards is April 2nd. Now is a great time start to think about whether you’d apply and what you will need for your application.
There are two big “families” of leadership awards, each with their own application. The first group is for returning students (aka “in-course awards”): these recognize exceptional extra-curricular engagment and leadership by candidates, and if a student receives the award, it is paid out upon their reregistration in the Fall of 2015.
The second “family” of leadership awards is for graduating students, whether graduating this June or *having* graduated in November 2014.
There are also awards with their own applications. One that pertains to this Spring is the M “Fuzz” Friend Memorial Award, which recognizes long term contribution to the life and community of the Innis College Residence.

Hey Innis! Join us for our Equity Leadership summit this year!
Throughout the day, you will be encouraged to think about:
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.
Please also do not hesitate reaching out either to the Office of Student Life or the Registrar’s Office if you want to consult to find out more about the award and the possibility of your candidacy.
