What’s New for July 2013
During the summer months the University of Toronto is a bit quieter as most students are on break and staff and faculty are busy preparing for the start of the new academic year in the fall. We thought this would be a good opportunity to highlight some of the exciting and culturally diverse events that are taking place in the broader community.
