UTSCAA President Welcome

Bruce GeddesBruce Geddes
1968 BA UTSC

It is my privilege to serve as the President of the UTSC Alumni Association for the next two years. As one of the first graduates of Scarborough College (BA 1968), I have tried to keep in touch with the university and its remarkable development over the past fifty years, mostly through attending significant alumni events.

Our executive board met in July to make preliminary plans for the upcoming year. Our mandate is two-fold: to reach out and connect with our 45,000 alumni members by enriching educational and social events and secondly to make a difference in the lives of our 10,000 students currently enrolled on campus.
