Welcome from the School of Graduate Studies
Welcome to the August edition of Gradschool e-news—and welcome to U of T!
As a registered grad student, you will receive Gradschool e-news each month to keep you updated on key dates and deadlines, awards opportunities, and grad-focused events and initiatives across U of T’s three campuses. We welcome your contributions: tell us about student-run projects that will have an impact on the larger graduate community, and send us your student event listings. Nominate your graduate administrator or coordinator for recognition in Gradschool e-news, or share advice with fellow students about how to transition smoothly to life in Toronto and to graduate studies at U of T.
Having been with the School of Graduate Studies since 2012, I can assure you that we have a very hard-working team here to support you throughout your program. SGS services run the gamut from graduate wellness counselling, financial aid and advising, and accessibility advising to international student services and professional development workshops. Never hesitate to bring your questions to us at the SGS Student Academic Services office (Room 101, 63 St. George St.), open Monday to Friday (August: 9:30 am – 4:00 pm; September: 9:30 am – 4:30 pm, with extended hours on September 12) to learn more. The SGS website and Essential Guide for Grad Students can provide additional information and direction throughout your program.
I also welcome your feedback about your graduate experience, and would like to hear how SGS can better support you from admission to graduation. Ask your graduate unit about signing up for a Dean’s Brunch or Dean’s Coffee event, where you can meet peers from all divisions, share your thoughts, and ask questions.
On behalf of SGS, I wish you a very successful year.
Luc De Nil,
Acting Dean, School of Graduate Studies and Acting Vice-Provost, Graduate Research and Education
