Registration Deadline: Nov 6, 2020 02:00 PM

This event is for First Generation students who live at home, or have moved away from home, or live in any set of circumstances; and experience conflict or crisis with others. Students will: examine how systemic inequities and COVID-19 impacts housing issues; have opportunities to share (including anonymous) about different conflicts they are experiencing in their housing; receive Housing Services and community resources to help mange hardship; and engage in building community. Participants will join conversations facilitated by student Mentor Navigators, Access & Inclusion Peer Programs; Katrina Persad, Student Life Coordinator, Housing Education; and David Roberts, Associate Professor & Director, Urban Studies Program.

First generation students (and any siblings) are first in their family to attend post-secondary education in Canada, and make up approximately 25% of all students at U of T.

This event will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams. We will email details on how to join the event one day in advance. 
Please note, here are instructions on how to download the MS Teams application.
