Coronavirus: should you be attentive to how it could affect teaching and learning in Toronto School of Theology member schools? Attentive, yes; alarmed, no.

TST has been in conversation with the University of Toronto's Provost’s office. The University is monitoring the potential spread of coronavirus and how it may, or may not, affect the St. George campus. TST and its member colleges will follow the University's lead. More information and updates from the University can be found here.

On behalf of the Toronto School of Theology staff and member schools, I wish to express our deep grief over the loss of life due to the tragic crash of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752. As a consortium of Christian schools, some of whom host interreligious conversations, we mourn the loss of all of the lives lost in the disaster. We acknowledge the impact of this loss on the families, friends and communities of the dead, especially in Canada and at the University of Toronto. With U of T President Gertler, we extend our condolences and will hold all who are directly or tangentially involved in our hearts and moments of prayer in the days and weeks to come.
