A new tool designed at U of T Scarborough will make it easier for undergraduate students to get involved in research. Developed by the Office of the Vice-Principal Research and the Academic Advising & Career Centre (AA&CC), the new UTSC Research Catalogue provides a list of all research opportunities at UTSC and at partner institutions, an overview of the research activities listed, and also showcases faculty research profiles.

“Faculty can broaden awareness about their research opportunities and offer advice to students who may want to do research with them, while students can also learn about the skills and experience they can acquire,” says AA&CC Director Jennifer Ankrett.

The new catalogue is available to all UTSC students on the Career Learning Network (CLN), an online hub that helps students manage their academic and career goals.

“Having a research catalogue available through CLN is an ideal fit,” says Ankrett, “because it allows undergraduates interested in doing research the ability to start planning ahead and learn about the breadth of research opportunities at UTSC.”
