Workshops are open to all undergraduate Ted Rogers School students! Whether you're in your first term, or finishing up your degree; on probation or on the Dean's List. Join us!

Each workshop is facilitated by our Peer Coaches, upper-year students trained in learning support. Get ready to participate!
