Our journey continues in fall 2017, as the University of Toronto Scarborough holds a series of academic discussions examining developments affecting Canada as we celebrate Canadian Perspectives in this the 150th year since Confederation.  For the current line-up for Great Explorations - October 2017

Great Explorations welcomes you to join us and hear from some of the campus' most renowned thinkers.  Building on our history of community engagement, the series offers an intellectually enriching experience that explores critical issues in the world today.  The series follows a two-part format, opening with remarks followed by a question-and-answer period with attendees.  Please select from the recent talks below.
