Alumni & Friends - Ways to get involved and give back

Programs & Events

University of Toronto Scarborough Connections and Conversations organizes campus specific and tri-campus events to encourage cross-portfolio, cross-divisional and cross-campus collaboration to provide a community of support and opportunities for mentorship and professional development.

Some of our events are designed for all staff to attend and help to provide opportunities for learning and allyship, while other programs are closed sessions created to foster safer spaces for BIPOC staff.
