Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Student Learning Centre In-Class Workshops

The Student Learning Centre can:

  • Provide course support.
    • This support comes in the form of assignment planning, in-class workshops, Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS), referrals, subject-specific resources, and support for bilingual and multilingual (ESL/EAL) students.
  • Visit your class to facilitate workshops.
    • Workshops may be delivered at a time that is convenient for your students. Please provide at least two weeks' notice to schedule an in-class workshop or contact us at least three weeks in advance for a customized workshop request.
  • Support course incentives.
    • Some professors have implemented course incentives to support student success. The incentives look different in different courses and can take the form of a bonus grade or an assignment requirement. A course incentive encourages students to utilize academic support by attending one or more of the SLC services (workshops, appointments, or drop-in hours). Please note, there may be capacity limits based on resources and staffing.
