INTRODUCING: LEO JIANG


"I really started to fall in love with the Innis community early in my second year and my feelings haven't changed since. University is a big place, and it's kinda tough to find something in common with a complete stranger out on the street. Innis might not be perfect for everyone, but it can be a cozy place to meet genuine friends who sincerely care. Lots of groups, like the OSL, dons, and various councils do an amazing job keeping student schedules packed with events and of making sure everyone is coping with stresses. Honestly, it's my home away from home. That's why I consistently try my best to repay the favour through my various extracurriculars. Next time you see me, say hi! And if you're curious, I'd be glad to share more of my story with you."

SPECIAL PRESENTATION: FROM THEIR LIPS 


Venture to Hart House for a special presentation of From Their Lips, a work-in-progress play based on Intergeneracial, a Black youth oral history theatre project. It was founded by Fiona Raye Clarke - an Innis College alumna - in 2015. The project involves youth meeting weekly, interviewing Black elders and fellow Black youth in the community, asking them the same set of questions, and using their words and stories to create the theatre piece. After the performance, there will be a talk-back session and refreshments. Registration online is free, and the door will be pay-as-you-can.

Diversity & Service


INNIS OFFICE OF STUDENT LIFE PRESENTS "TIE DYE-VERSITY"

 

INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGES: HEALING AND ABORIGINAL HOMELESSNESS


You are invited to the 2016 annual Dr. Peggy Hill Memorial Lecture in Indigenous Health. It will be held in the Mining Building on November 24 from 5:30 - 7:30pm.

Currently, Indigenous peoples in Canada comprise about 4% of the overall population, yet represent 20-50% of the homeless population in urban areas across the country. This over-representation in homelessness identifies a significant area of need in terms of mental health services, as homeless peoples are also identified as having high rates of mental health problems. 

Dr. Suzanne L. Stewart's lecture on Indigenous Knowledges: Healing Aboriginal Homelessness will be an enlightening discussion bringing us a step closer to understanding this issue and what has impacted current trends. Registration is required.

 

WORLD AIDS DAY CONFERENCE


The U of T International Health Program's Global Health Engage will be hosting the annual World AIDS Day Conference on November 30 from 6 - 8pm in the Great Hall, Hart House. The day presents the opportunity for local and global communities to continue the conversation on persisting issues and accomplished successes of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. That night, we celebrate and share the efforts and experiences of the many who have dedicated their lives to eradicating HIV/AIDS. This year's theme is disclosure, with a moderated panel to discuss what HIV/AIDS disclosure means in different communities and disciplines. Participants are encouraged to wear red to the event.

Please RSVP and get your FREE ticket through Eventbrite.
