Committee Description Contact Information
Artistic Resource Team (ART)

The ART committee is dedicated to celebrating and showcasing Art on residence. We aim to create an inclusive space for creatives, those who appreciate the arts and anyone just looking to engage in artistic activities as a hobby/de-stressor. 

ART’s marquee event is ARTsFest, a talent show that is usually held in the Blind Duck Pub. During this event, artists living on residence from a variety of disciplines (Visual Artists, Singers, Actors, Dancers etc.) get the opportunity to showcase their work and even win a cash prize based on judges' evaluation and audience nominations. Smaller events include, Open-Mic nights, Paint-Nights, Coffeehouses as well as recurring Jam Nights.

If you are interested in joining ART, email us to get put on our mailing list at:

Colman Cup

Colman Cup is a long-standing tradition at the UTM residence where students compete in their mascot groups to win the Colman Cup trophy! It provides students the opportunity to meet other residents and build community spirit through friendly competition!

The committee is responsible for planning and running these bi-weekly events as well as the year-end celebration and awards ceremony, Colman Cup Bash. We look forward to seeing you represent your mascot in the next Colman Cup event!

Marquee Events: bi-weekly Colman Cup activities, Colman Cup Bash.

Equity Outreach Network

The Equity Outreach Network (EON) values diversity as a strength in order to center equity and inclusion as prioritized values on residence. We aim to recruit a team that is passionate about these shared values and are committed to amplifying student voices, particularly underrepresented and equity-seeking individuals. In taking a more focused approach, PRISM provides a safe space for self-identifying QTBIPOC students, The Kickback supports self-identifying Black students living in residence, and Umbrella creates a network for self-identifying LGBT2Q+ students.
Programming will include monthly opportunities to find community within branch groups in addition to marquee events, such as Chill N' Chat, A Cup of Coco, and The Year End Equity Gala. Students will be able to take the lead in or attend these marquee events. There will also be opportunities to step out of your comfort zone and join EDI conversations conducted through webinars, workshops and informal community gathering settings.
