Department of Visual Studies Student Society (DVSSS)


The Department of Visual Studies Student Society (DVSSS), also known as Devious Minds was formed in the fall of 2011. Our purpose as an academic society is to enrich the experience of students at UTM enrolled in Department of Visual Studies programs (AAH, AH, VCC, CIN) by offering support, resources, and events that promote academic, professional, personal, and social development. We are dedicated to building an arts and culture scene on the UTM campus. Membership is free and open to all students of the University of Toronto and new members are accepted throughout the academic year. To join DVSSS, send a note to
