STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
'Global citizen' Connie Carter creates U of T scholarship to boost Caribbean presence on world stage
On a recent flight to Toronto, Connie Carter beamed as she filled out her customs form. In the box that asked for her nationality, she was able to print “Canadian” for the very first time.
“I felt such pride,” says Carter, who was born in Jamaica, educated in the United Kingdom, lived in Denmark for most of her adult life and became a Canadian citizen last October.
The University of Toronto’s department of computer science in the Faculty of Arts & Science has announced plans to establish the Beiruti and Saleheh Memorial Fund – an endowed graduate student scholarship in memory of Mohammad Amin Beiruti and Mohammad Saleheh, two computer science PhD students who tragically lost their lives in the crash of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752.
Randy Boyagoda, the principal of the University of Toronto’s University of St. Michael's College, is happy to give credit for the college’s new first-term check-in program where it’s due: the students themselves.
The program, which matches first-year students with professors to chat about adjusting to university life, is the result of an idea brought forward by St. Mike’s student union.
Boyagoda says he was pleased when a group of students approached him last spring to ask what St. Mike’s was doing to promote mental health.

“The cool thing about the aerospace program at U of T is that it is off campus. It was like a small community in itself, where you have the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of people studying diverse initiatives.”

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the St. George campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
