Although I’ve been at U of T Mississauga for over a decade, I still find myself smiling when stepping out of the car in the mornings because I love this campus! I chose UTM as a student because it offered me a world class U of T degree in a smaller community environment similar to my hometown. I’ve stayed on campus for my career because I want to give back to the community that gave me so much to be thankful for and look forward to. I very much credit my time at UTM with the education, career, and colleagues and friends I hold so dear and who have made me the person I am today.  As UTM’s first ever Manager of Pathways Programs, I connect with students coming to UTM through non-traditional pathways: those transferring from college or other universities, mature students who have been away from formal education for some time and require a bridge to university studies, as well as students whose first language is not English but who are academically strong and just need a little extra language support. I am here to answer questions about the admission requirements, application process, and transition opportunities for this growing non-traditional population of students. With my experience working in Recruitment, Advising, and Transfer Credits at UTM, I’m hoping to make the transition to our community a smooth and exciting one!

My name is Ting, and I am a member of the Recruitment team here at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. My area of focus is international student recruitment. I have been working in this field for more than seven years, having previously worked as the senior recruitment officer at McMaster University recruiting international students within Canada and abroad. I have an undergraduate degree from McMaster University and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Schulich School of Business. Having been an international student myself, I can really relate to the obstacles and challenges you might have as a new comer to this country. I am here to help! Here at UTM, you will find all sorts of aid geared to create a welcoming environment for international students to advance in their studies. We have all sorts of resources ready to help you on your path of success. I’ll be visiting international schools within Canada and abroad in the near future to tell you all about UTM and to answer your questions. See you very soon! If you cannot wait and have questions for me, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome to UTM! My name is Megan, and I’m one of the Recruitment Officers at the University of Toronto Mississauga. From the moment I arrived on campus in 2009, I knew I was in the right place. I love that this is a green campus surrounded by wildlife. It’s also conveniently located between both Hamilton (my hometown) and downtown Toronto. I was also drawn to UTM for its passion for innovation and development. We are constantly growing! There are so many resources to take advantage of, and dedicated staff and faculty who are passionate about student success. I lived in Oscar Peterson Hall in my first year on campus, and worked with Student Housing and Residence Life for the remainder of my undergrad. UTM embraced my passion for learning and provided me with opportunities that shaped me into who I am today. I had an amazing experience as a student here, and after 2 years of working and travelling the world, I’m glad to be back on our beautiful campus to welcome you as you embark on your next big adventure - your undergraduate career! I look forward to meeting you and speaking to you about the opportunities available for you at UTM. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Welcome to UTM! My name is Jen, and I am one of the newest members of the Recruitment team here at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

I am both thrilled and proud to finally call the University of Toronto Mississauga home. Our campus is green and vibrant; our community culturally diverse and engaged; our faculty and staff are dedicated and truly care about our students, and our degrees are varied and internationally recognized. There is no place I’d rather be! I look forward to sharing my passion for UTM with you, and am happy to answer any questions you might have.

Hometown: Etobicoke, Ontario
High School: Michael Power/St. Joseph
Degree: Master of Education, University of Toronto (OISE), 2014
Programs: Higher Education
I joined the University of Toronto community in 2007 when I started my BA specialist degree in English. While an undergraduate student, I spent much of my time in the Athletic Centre (AC) on campus. This was largely due to the fact that I competed for the Varsity Blues Cross Country running team for three years. Participating in a university sport was a great way to get involved and represent such a fantastic institution! I later decided to complete an M.Ed in Higher Education at OISE so that I could continue my time in the university community in a professional capacity. While completing this degree I had the opportunity to work as a work-study student in the School of Continuing Studies. This is where I learned about my love for working with students. I'm always excited to learn about a student's goals and how post-secondary education can help the student achieve them. I am so excited to now be at the beautiful Mississauga campus! I look forward to hearing about your goals and helping you get started on your path here at UTM!
