Interested in community service, leadership, social change or community development? The University of Toronto Mississauga offers a number of different ways for residence students to participate in mutually beneficial community engagement opportunities.
Community Day Events
When living in residence you will have the opportunity to participate in Community Day Events. These short-term community engagement opportunities (1-2 days) provide you with the chance to connect with community partners and give back to the campus and surrounding area.
Students who participate in Community Day Events will receive an annotation on the Co-Curricular record and will be awarded their 1st or 2nd choice for Alternative Reading Week (ARW) should they decide to participate in that event.
