Introducing: James An

Hey Innisians! My name is James An and I am a third-year student pursuing a double major in Human Biology and Psychology. At Innis, I’m currently running Insight, our undergraduate peer mentorship program. Mentors in Insight are dedicated upper-year students, who help with their mentee’s transition into university!  I am also an Environmental Committee Co-Chair for the Innis Residence Council, working with a passionate and driven team to raise environmental awareness in our tight-knit community.  
James An Portrait
Through monthly initiatives and events, we actively try to reduce our carbon footprint. For example, our annual winter Thermostat Challenge – which promotes responsible use of heating indoors – has led to noticeable reductions in energy use at Innis Residence over the years. When it comes to reducing our impact on the environment, it’s always a collective effort. We all have the responsibility to educate, help and inspire one another. 

Reflecting on my years at U of T so far, I am very privileged to be involved with these roles, roles that have given me lasting relationships with my fellow Innis students. If I were to tell the first year me something: find something you love, make friends, and get involved already!
