Community partnerships are a trusted and valued source of information. We believe that knowledge exchange and mobilization is critical to the growth and development of our communities within the university and beyond. When we exchange our knowledge from different contexts, we create opportunities to open doors to deeper understanding. This is why so many of our resources are openly available.
Community engagement is an integral part of the development of the University of Toronto Scarborough in enriching student experiential learning experiences, creating research opportunities, and actively participating with governments, business and residents by expanding our role as a city building institution. Through the establishment of academic and co-curricular service opportunities that respond to community defined priorities, students and the citizens they serve will enrich their learning of the social, cultural, ethical, environmental and political dimensions of civic life.
Our Community Partnerships and Engagement Annual Reports provide a general overview of our community engagement strategy and initiatives in many diverse areas.
