Durham College, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, the Canadian Urban Institute, and the CIty of Oshawa have partnered to help Oshawa become what Durham calls the world’s first “Teaching City.” The initiative would establish Oshawa as a city focused on experiential learning, applied research, and innovative teaching partnerships centred on urban issues. “Engaging our post-secondary institutions and other partners gives Oshawa a unique opportunity to work with the academic community in ways that will advance our City,” said Oshawa Mayor John Henry. “The initiative signals Oshawa’s intent to continuously adapt and embrace new ideas to the benefit of our residents.” UOIT | Durham
