2) Find each others gifts, talents, and capacities and find a place for them in… Continue

Let’s begin with the startling part. Class of 2009: you are going to have to figure out what it means to

Welcome to Toronto

We are in 'the mayhem' of preparation getting ready for your arrival. You will be 'packing', and very soon, all this planning and thinking and preparation will merge into the new and unique creation - the Toronto Summer Institute 2009.



Remarkably, Summer Institutes have been occurring since 1984 - when we held the first 'full blown' Institute at McGill University in Montreal. That is a little humbling, but here we are in 2009 - still going.. still learning ... still challenged by the… Continue
