Retirees are an important constituency of the UTSC community. The Office of the Vice-Principal Academic & Dean is pleased to be the key point of contact for UT Scarborough Retirees. We provide information about University benefits and services that are available to retirees as well as information on campus news, strategic planning and upcoming academic and cultural events. Please contact us if you have any suggestions, questions or concerns about retiree services. For information on upcoming academic events, exhibits at the Doris McCarthy Gallery as well as exciting cultural events taking place on campus, join our listserv at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a new strategic plan for UTSC, with five strategic directions: 1) to create an environment to house and support the growth of new and emerging fields of scholarship at the undergraduate level; 2) to expand its onsite graduate training at the Masters and PhD levels to 10+ percent of the total student population; 3) to become an international hub for learning and partnership within the U of T system; 4) to be a leader in experiential learning by offering curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for students; and 5) to ensure that the best people, appropriate resources and excellent facilities and programs are in place to provide an exceptional place to work and learn.
UTSC will also benefit greatly being home to a state-of-the-art athletic facility for the 2015 Pan Am Games. The new athletic complex will offer first-class facilities for health, wellness and athletics for UTSC and members of the neighbouring community. It will also result in enhanced public transportation to the campus. Similar to the existing UTSC Athletics and Recreation services, these new facilities will be fully accessible to faculty retirees as part of the discounted Joint Membership program. Currently this membership provides you access to top fitness classes, cardio and weight training in "THE KEY" and Cardio Theatre, use of the squash courts and golf cage, summer tennis, and gym activities. We also offer instructional classes on a broad range of activities from Archery and Cyclefit, to Latin Dance and Yoga. Personal fitness assessments, a nutritionist, and personal trainer are available as well for a nominal fee as part of the Joint Membership program.
As a member of UTSC, other high quality amenities are also available to you. These include access to the Ralph Campbell Lounge, a beautiful space to catch up with friends or relax and enjoy a quiet moment. The lounge is equipped with wireless Internet access where you can use your existing UTORid, email account, and online services just as before. Similarly, all library services, including full borrowing privileges and Internet access, are also available for your use. We will be happy to assist you in obtaining card access to the Ralph Campbell Lounge, access to the other facilities at UTSC or in joining the discounted Joint Membership program.
