Principal’s Welcome

Joe Desloges welcomes students and alumni back to Woodsworth College for the 2012-13 academic year

I want to welcome all  new and returning students to  Woodsworth College. I hope that this academic year will be challenging and rewarding.  The Woodsworth community has much to offer to all our students. I hope that students will avail themselves of the wide-ranging services and programs provided by  the Registrar's Office, the Writing Centre and the Office of the Dean of Students.

I would also like to extend a warm welcome to our 20,000 plus cohort of alumni.  There are many activities and events at the College that I hope will be of interest to this group. We look forward to seeing many of our alumni through the course of the year.

This year we are inaugurating the College's Boundless Opportunities Campaign and ushering in a year's worth of celebrations.

The anniversaries that we are celebrating – the 45th anniversary of the Millie Rotman Shime Academic Bridging Program, the 40th anniversary of the Summer Abroad Program, and the 50th anniversary of the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies – are all central to our campaign themes and priorities.  As we welcome back students and alumni to our campus, we are not only looking forward to all the events and activities of a new academic year, but are also looking back over the years and decades of excellence. Woodsworth has provided generations of students with amazing opportunities for personal growth and academic achievement, access to a university education, and enriching educational programs; so our looking forward and looking back will inform our campaign as we celebrate our milestones and plan for the future.

I am very happy that we are also inaugurating the Woodsworth ONE program this fall.  Our first cohort of students will take part in innovative programing in small seminar settings and will have opportunities for engagement with each other both inside and outside the classroom.

I hope that  students, alumni and friends will join us for our events and celebrations and I look forward to meeting many of you during the course of the year.
