STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
Nearly 40 Black students from high schools in the Greater Toronto Area have been taking part in science workshops provided by science departments in the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Arts & Science.
The outreach program, called Pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), began in March and will run until August. The online workshops cover a diversity of topics, including artificial intelligence, programming languages, number theory, vulcanism and other geological processes, spectroscopes and more.
More than 15,000 new undergraduate students enrol at the University of Toronto every year.
Why do they choose U of T?
Not surprisingly, the reasons are as varied as the university’s student body itself.
For some, it comes down to the university’s distinguished position in international rankings. Others cite U of T’s top-tier researchers who are tackling some of the world’s biggest problems, or the opportunity to study in a specific program.
Erica Neeganagwedgin is looking to tell a different story than the one currently being told.
Neeganagwedgin, who earned master's and doctorate degrees from the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), has established the Olive Moxam Indigenous Bursary – named for her mother – to support Indigenous, Black and Taino students in OISE’s master of teaching program.

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.
