Every year, the CCDS hosts a number of seminars for students and faculty to learn and engage in a variety of different topics.

Students networking with Al Berry series lecturer

Al Berry Lecture Series

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.
