Michelle Stinson speaks about the impact the Women’s and Gender Studies program had on her as a student and as a community member of Scarborough. A strong supporter of Women’s and Gender Studies, she shares her sense of how the programme is undervalued by the institution. Michelle talks about the diversity in the campus and broader Scarborough communities. She shares her sense of the importance of the closeness that develops on a smaller campus — the relationship with professors and other students — and how individuals from the St. George campus often have negative view of UTSC. Michelle also talks about the importance of mentorship and her role as a mentor when she was an undergraduate student in the 2010s.
