The CCDS hosts several events throughout the school year. In addition to the annual events listed below, the CCDS provides an array of events, debates, seminars and panels that vary from year-to-year. For a list of past events, please visit the archived events page.
The IDS potluck is an event for IDS students and faculty. It's an event and oppourtunity for faculty and students from all years and programs to get together, meet one another, share expperiences, and enjoy some delicious food.
Every year, the CCDS hosts a number of seminars for students and faculty to learn and engage in a variety of different topics.
Al Berry has and continues to be a seminal person in the life of the IDS programs at UTSC. He was part of an inspired group of faculty members that founded the IDS programs in 1984 and he has been a long-appreciated teacher and mentor to three decades of IDS students. It is, therefore, fitting that the CCDS name its annual lecture series in his honour.
For the last several years, the students of the IDS programs have hosted an International Development Conference.
