A message from the Principal
Welcome to the September edition of Inside UTSC and to the Fall term. I hope you had an opportunity to take a break from your work responsibilities to enjoy the summer. It continues to be a busy and transformative time for us. Just last week, we officially opened the Instructional Centre, which is now a proud part of our academic learning environment. Featuring technologically advanced classrooms, labs and study and meeting spaces, the IC marks our expansion onto the North campus, paving the way for further leading-edge facilities and programs in the not-too-distant future.
In this regard, the planning for the Pan Am Games in 2015 is in high gear. The lands are being prepared for construction, which will begin in 2012. With a project of this complexity, extraordinary effort is required to keep things on track—and that’s exactly what everyone involved with bringing the facility to fruition is putting forth.
With so much happening on both the North and South campuses, keeping in touch will be more important than ever before. Besides this e-newsletter, a new magazine has been created; our website will be revamped and we are embracing the features of social media. So, please stay connected with UTSC using any vehicle you choose.
Best wishes for an enjoyable and productive term.
Professor Franco J. Vaccarino
Principal, University of Toronto Scarborough
