UTM student advocates for women’s economic empowerment
Promoting greater economic empowerment for young women worldwide was the focus of an international conference in Australia, and representing Canada’s perspective was U of T Mississauga student ESTELLE AH-KIOW. The G(irls) 20 Summit, which took place at the Sydney Opera House, focused on how to create more educational and career opportunities for girls and women worldwide. The event mirrors the annual G20 meeting of heads of state, but also includes representatives from the European and African Unions, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Middle East and North Africa.
‘Steak-knife’ teeth in oldest land predators
The first top predators to walk on land were not afraid to bite off more than they could chew, a University of Toronto Mississauga study has found. Graduate student and lead author KIRSTIN BRINK along with Professor ROBERT REISZ from U of T Mississauga’s Department of Biology suggest that Dimetrodon, a carnivore that walked on land between 298 million and 272 million years ago, was the first terrestrial vertebrate to develop serrated ziphodont teeth. According to the study published in Nature Communications, ziphodont teeth, with their serrated edges, produced a more efficient bite and would have allowed Dimetrodon to eat prey much larger than itself.
Excellence & Environment
Small-Town Charm With Big-Town Resources
Intimate, diverse and friendly, surrounded by nature and self-contained, the UTM campus exudes a small-town charm. Yet it exists at the heart of one of the world’s great urban centres as an integral part of one of the world’s great universities. It provides students, teachers and researchers with modern facilities, valuable partnerships and a rich campus culture that supports academic life.
Our Dynamic Urban Form
Over the last decade, U of T Mississauga has significantly enhanced its architectural footprint. A number of award-winning new facilities have altered the look of campus and opened transformative possibilities for campus living and learning.
Our Innovation Complex is home to our signature Institute for Management & Innovation that offers a differentiated management education program for our future entrepreneurs and leaders. Deerfield Hall provides new theatre rehearsal spaces and laboratories for child behaviour research. The Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre is our state-of-the-art library, the Recreation, Athletics and Wellness Centre is our bright, leading-edge fitness facility and the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex is home to the Mississauga Academy of Medicine.
All of our buildings have contributed to the greening of campus. The Instructional Centre, for example, is powered by geothermal and solar technology.
A University of Toronto Degree
Our campus supports a unique UTM experience but one that is intimately connected with the University of Toronto tradition. Every year, UTM students participate in the graduation ceremonies at historic Convocation Hall on the St. George campus in downtown Toronto. They emerge, along with their classmates from other campuses, as fully fledged graduates of the University of Toronto, recognized as one of the world’s top-ranked teaching and research institutions.
The UTM Experience
The University of Toronto Mississauga is a place where talent and ideas converge to meet global challenges.
U of T Mississauga has evolved into a distinctive campus, featuring highly sought-after degree options, transformative research and strong ties to our local community. As it grows and attracts international interest, it remains linked to its local community through business and research partnerships. It continues to reflect the high academic and research standing of the larger University of Toronto, yet offers its own unique programming, resources and educational experience.
At U of T Mississauga, we pursue excellence, inspire creativity, develop talent and prepare graduates to become the next global innovation leaders.
