Approximately 50 undergraduate students joined the Dean for a Town Hall meeting on February 6, 2009. Cristina Amon provided an update on ongoing programs and initiatives. Jonathan Asmis, President of the U of T Engineering Society, reported on Atrium renovations scheduled for summer 2009, reminded students to make their needs known regarding lab equipment to be purchased from the student levy and encouraged them to consider standing for election as EngSoc officers and class representatives when nominations open after Reading Week. Students then presented questions and feedback in an open forum. Their wishes with respect to improved wireless access were noted and are being addressed. The conversation also included grading practices and teaching methods and concluded with a discussion of the Faculty’s current and planned globalization initiatives.
