WHY: For the first time, UTSC will be delivering a course at what is called a “community engagement site” located off campus, starting in summer 2009. A space is being leased by the university and contains a large classroom, an office and a library, and the site can be used by students as well as by local organizations interested in having access to the student research. Students will commit several course hours per week to volunteer with different agencies in the Kingston-Galloway neighbourhood.
