Engaging Faculty Events

Engaging Faculty Events. Banner. A professor and group of students having a conversation.

Engaging Faculty Events are designed to increase the opportunities for out-of-classroom interactions between students and faculty and allow for meaningful relationships to develop between students and faculty in an area of academic or personal interest.  These events are also a unique way to explore our UTM community!  This year we will be having events such as a visit to the Blackwood Art Gallery, exporing the Crime Scene House, touring the Davis Green House, and attending a play at Erindale Theatre.

Engaging Faculty Events will occur in October, November, January, February and March.

This experience is approved on the Co-Curricular Record (CCR)! Links to the ccr website.
