By partnering with a number of Centres across UofT, our Learning Communities look to provide you with opportunities to enhance your university experience.
Centre for Community Partnerships: Partnering with the Centre for Community Partnerships at U of T, the Community Kitchen program is an opportunity for all of our first-year students to learn about the relationship between food and community. You will learn food preparation and cooking techniques from a local chef, as you also engage in a critical discussion on topics such as food sustainability, food and social justice, food and First Nations food sovereignty, gentrification, nourishment and well-being.
HealthyU: Peer Mentors from HealthyU and First-Year Learning Communities team-up to deliver a session to all of our students on the “5 Strategies to Health and Well-Being.” You will learn about approaches to cope with stress in your daily life, resources on-campus when you are in need of help, creating a balanced life and ways to become actively involved in our university and city.
Learning Communities Lunchtime Talk Series: By attending our lunchtime talk series, you will hear from faculty advisors about their journey through undergraduate and graduate programs, their career trajectory and how they overcame the challenges they faced along the way. These talks serve as an important reminder that you will undoubtedly face a few twists and turns as you navigate university and your career, as success is rarely a straight line.
