Re: Now Available: New School of Graduate Studies website
I am pleased to announce that the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) has introduced a new website with enhanced functionality to better serve prospective and current graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff. Highlights include a searchable graduate awards database with a direct feed to awards announcements; a searchable database of graduate programs that is synchronized with the SGS Calendar; and an events calendar featuring SGS-related events occurring across all three campuses.
Following consultations with graduate students and graduate units, we have also divided the site into three components: a primary site designed to assist prospective and current students; a postdoctoral fellows subsite that addresses the needs of prospective and current postdocs at U of T, and a faculty & staff subsite that provides secure access to administrative documents, forms, and memos. The site shares the AODA-compliant theme and is mobile-friendly. This theme was developed by the VPP Systems the Information Services team in the Chief Administrative Officer’s division.
As many of the addresses to SGS webpages have now changed, I encourage you to visit the new site and update your bookmarks and any communications to graduate students, as needed.
I also welcome your feedback on this new site. Please do not hesitate to email email@example.com with any comments or questions.
