Great Explorations

Our special thanks to our engaged, critical thinkers who attended the Spring 2023 Great Explorations talks focussing on sustainability. The dialogues that came out of the talks, both in-person and online, were among the most riveting in our seven year history of offering the series to our campus and Scarborough communities. While we plan the Fall 2023 series, we welcome your input for future topics, as well as a review of previous recorded sessions available on YouTube.

We are proud of our continuing commitment to lifelong learning and community engagement at the University of Toronto Scarborough. As a contributing community member of the Highland Creek and Rouge Valley areas, and Eastern Greater Toronto Area, we are excited to plan for another season of our celebrated speaker series, Great Explorations, with both in-person and live-streaming components coming this October 2023.

With the challenges of the past three years still in sight, we are continuing to focus the theme for the fall series on research at U of T Scarborough from different perspectives, highlighting sustainable development goals for ourselves, our community, and the planet.

Great Explorations is a series of academic discussions we hope will inspire our communities. We welcome you to join us in person in the Catalyst Centre or online and hear from some of the campus' most renowned thinkers. Join our GE-newsletter to be notified when registration for the Fall series opens.

Complimentary refreshments and parking exit passes will be provided for those attending in person. Accessible parking is available in Parking Lot L, outside the Instructional Centre, and adjacent to the Environmental Science & Chemistry Building where the Catalyst Centre is located.

Looking forward to you joining us in the Fall!
