Intervals - The UTSC Principal’s Blog

We academics dedicate our lives to sharing our knowledge, to thinking and writing. So I humbly offer my thoughts here in a way that presents a unique opportunity to be engaged with you. While I don’t pretend my insights are the final word, I am keen to share stories with you through my eyes. It’s my hope that this blog will encourage you to share your thoughts as well and I will be appreciative of your contribution to our conversation. Dialogue—even among those who may not see the world the same way—is the key to building great communities.
