Are you a faculty member at UTM? The Centre for Student Engagement (CSE) cordially invites you to participate in a variety of UTM student programming in the Fall 2019 term!

Research shows us that faculty involvement in co-curricular activities helps create positive and motivational student experiences that are essential for learning success. In 2017-2018, 151 faculty members participated in 15 initiatives and helped staff and students build and enrich the greater UTM community. This year, we are happy to repeat our successful past initiatives and welcome returning and new faculty members to participate!
