Student Engagement in the Arts Awards

The University of Toronto celebrates student engagement and leadership in art related initiatives annually with the University of Toronto Student Engagement in the Arts Awards (SEAA). This Award recognizes students who have made significant leadership and/or volunteer contributions to co-curricular arts activities at the University.

The SEAAs recognize undergraduate and graduate student work outside the classroom in the arts related activities. Previous recipients have been awarded for contributions through dance, theatre, curation, visual arts, and arts administration activities. Students from all three U of T campuses are eligible for these awards.

Awards will be presented at a ceremony on March 23, 2017 .
