The National Survery of Student Engagement (NSSE)

Throughout February and March all first- and senior-year undergraduate students will be asked to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). This survey is used by all Ontario universities and Canadian peer universities to measure the quality of undergraduate education. The results of this survey are used to identify the strengths of a U of T education as well as identify priorities for change.

Students who complete the survey will be entered into a draw to win great prizes. If your student receives an invitation to participate, please encourage them to respond. U of T is listening.

Leanne Simpson, author

Author launches new book at Indigenous Education Week at U of T

Author Leanne Simpson launched Indigenous Education Week on the St. George campus with readings from her new volume of short stories, Islands of Decolonial Love. Set in urban and rural Canada, the stories and poems are written in the oral tradition but from the perspective of a contemporary indigenous person.

An accomplished writer and academic with a Ph.D. from the University of Manitoba, Ms. Simpson balances academic life with one where she engages with the elders and intellectual leaders of her community to gain a deeper understanding of her culture’s philosophy and ideas. She says, "The great thing about indigenous resurgence is that you can't just read about it, you have to embody it."  More about the author and her book >
