  • Facilitated Study Groups (FSGs) - In these weekly study groups for selected UTSC courses, students will discuss the lecture material and important concepts, develop study strategies and fresh approaches, and work through problems as a group to prepare for assignments and tests.
  • Service Learning and Outreach - The Service Learning and Outreach (SLO) program provides experiential education opportunities for students where they are matched with placement opportunities offered by their communities. As part of the experience, students reflect on how their academic knowledge enhances their delivery of service and how that service experience informs their academic understanding.
