Scholars Society enriches first-year experience

In September, 2005, the new Scholars Society was launched in concert with the first of the UTSC Faculty Lecture Series. The Scholars Society includes 44 of UTSC’s brightest first-year students, and 12 senior, tenured faculty mentors.

The Scholars Society is a unique opportunity for exceptional students to encounter the scholarly world through interactions with senior faculty. Each group is multi-disciplinary and offers students additional breadth of enquiry in their first-year of study. While students and mentors share similar research interests, free discussion and intellectual debate are encouraged in the group meetings.

In its first year, the Scholars Society has been very well-received. Future plans for the society include continuing membership for students beyond first-year, and a peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal facilitated by teaching and learning services.
