"If the law has made you a witness, remain a man of science. You have no victim to avenge, no guilty or innocent person to convict or save - you must bear testimony within the limits of science."
- Dr. P.C.H. Brouardel, 19th Century French Medico-Legalist

Over the holidays, CTV News aired a clip showcasing the CSI Club at Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute, an afterschool program that was designed by a forensic science alumni and current M.Sc. student at UTM, Jessica Lam.
UTM's CSI House was featured in the very first "Where We Work" series.
40 students from David Leeder Middle School came to UTM for their Discovery Day and helped solved a "crime" on campus. The Forensic Science program hosted activities and demonstrations such as 3D facial reconstruction, grave search and excavation, and crime scene processing.
Congratulations to our newest alumni!
