Since the program's inception, ComCult students have been instrumental in forming a graduate student culture at Ryerson. They were among the first to develop a Graduate Student Association, and have coordinated the Intersections graduate conference annually since 2001.

The Communication & Culture Graduate Students’ Association (ComCult GSA), external link represents all students registered in the Joint Graduate Program in Communication & Culture at York and Ryerson Universities. The ComCult GSA is affiliated with both the Ryerson Students' Union (through the Ryerson Graduate Students' Union, external link) and the York Federation of Students (YFS), external link.

ComCult has an official university page on LinkedIn, external link. In the past, the joint nature of our program has made it difficult for current students and alumni to connect with one another on LinkedIn’s professional network as students could only list one school on their profile. Our page is affiliated with both schools, and will serve as a central hub for connecting with alumni, sharing program updates, and distributing content relevant to ComCult graduates.

Update your information

If you currently have a LinkedIn profile, we ask that you follow these steps to update your information:

  2. Scroll down to “Education” and click “edit”
  3. If you currently have “Ryerson University” or “York University” listed as under “School”, type in “Communication and Culture” instead
  4. The joint program logo should appear in the drop down menu
  5. Verify that the “Degree” section reflects MA or PhD. You also have the option to add the stream under “Field of Study” i.e. Technology in Practice
  6. You can locate and access the page here https://www.linkedin.com/school/comcult/ or from either the
  7. Ryerson or York LinkedIn pages (Communication and Culture is listed as an “Affiliated School” on both official university pages).

Benefits to changing your profile status

  • You are now listed as a current student or alumni of both Ryerson and York Universities, and included in the career insight data for both universities
  • You can easily connect and network with other students and alumni from the program, regardless of which side they registered with
  • The page will serve as a joint online community where updates from both sides of the program will be posted, and you can be kept up to date with program news
  • As alumni, you can easily locate and request to join the private alumni group (listed as a featured group on the ComCult profile) where updates will be tailored to alumni engagement (networking events, surveys on how alumni want to be engaged, job postings, etc.)

Ryerson's campus is located in downtown Toronto within several blocks of Yonge and Dundas. York has several campuses, but its main Keele campus, external link is in the north west part of the city (near Downsview). The two campuses are readily accessible by public transit, external link.

The territory that is now known as Toronto has a rich history that extends thousands of years before European settlers arrived. The area known as Tkaronto (Toronto) is in the Dish With One Spoon Territory, external link. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaty signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
