U of T approves renovation plans for Innis College, announces new programs, approves creation of African studies centre


At its final meeting of the academic year, the University of Toronto’s Academic Board approved a number of projects, including the launch of new programs, the renovation and expansion of Innis College, and the launch of a new department. Two of the new programs–a music industry program and a technology specialist program–will be offered by UTSC in partnership with Centennial College. The renovation project will see Innis receive a new addition; renovations to critical areas such as classrooms, the commuter lounge, and the rooftop terrace; and changes to Innis Library to improve accessibility. Innis Principal Charlie Keil said that the redesign aims to ensure that “every space serves students.” The board also approved a proposal to establish an African studies centre as an extra-departmental unit at the Faculty of Arts & Science.
