•TF/TA Talks (sharing strategies for teaching and learning)
• Works-in-Progress Presentations (conference style presentations for students to showcase their MA or PhD research)
• Writing groups
• Workshops and presentations on topics such as equity, positive space, preparing for your defence, finding a post-doctoral position, etc.
• Orientation BBQ (September)
• Holiday Party (November)
• Coffee Socials
