While spring has been slow to come, the end of this academic year seems to have arrived in a flash – GradEx 103 is just two weeks away! Our eye-catching posters, featuring works from last year’s medal winners, are all over the neighbourhood including the subway. It is going to be another amazing exhibition with 23 program medal winners, the most ever. Thank-you to all of our faculty, academic administrators, staff, and entire community for the support that you have provided for our students this year. Another shout out to faculty and to the research office for their work – we have a significant number of successful tri-council grants this year – details are embargoed but we will share the good news shortly.

Thank you to the members of OPSEU Local 1 and our Board of Governors for the ratification of the new collective agreement.

In March, I had the pleasure of participating in the National Academy of Sciences’ Sackler Colloquium on Creativity and Collaboration: Revisiting Cybernetic Serendipity, in Washington, DC. I discussed the relationship between arts, design and culture and STEM learning, and the dynamic focus on transdisciplinary knowledge, Indigenous knowledge and decolonization that OCAD University is exploring. I also gave a keynote at the Toledo School of Visual and Performing Arts, in Ohio at a conference that explored issues in contemporary art and culture and collaboration between disciplines.

The Honourable Mitzie Hunter, Ontario’s Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, paid a visit to the university to meet students and demonstrate the new online OSAP calculator. The calculator gives students a preview of estimated tuition costs for each applied program and the estimated amount covered by the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). Minister Hunter and our MPP Han Dong took a short tour of our fifth and sixth floor Student Services Centre at 230 Richmond St. W.

You will have received my email about the exciting collaboration with the AGO to explore a partnership on new construction as part of our CCC project. I have met with Stephan Jost, Director and CEO of the AGO, and he shares my enthusiasm about the possibilities. While we do not yet have any images or details to share, please join us at the Town Hall today, April 18, to learn more about the rationale behind this potential new direction.

Warm regards,

 

Dr. Sara Diamond
