Faculty of Information
The Faculty of Information the iSchool @ Toronto is a professional and research faculty that educates leaders in a variety of information fields. Students come here to gain the expertise to work skillfully in today's complex knowledge society. Learning from and working alongside highly respected faculty, students acquire both foundational theories essential to information management and leading-edge practices that transform the way knowledge is generated and employed. From archives to digital collections, libraries and information systems to issues of policy and security, our Masters and PhD programs offer leading edge education to meet these demands.
I can tell you first-hand that support from donors like you has a big impact on how students learn and the opportunities we’re given outside of the classroom.
This year, I was honoured to win both the Dean’s Master of Information Scholarship and the ARMA (Archives & Research Management Association) Education International Foundation Scholarship. I’ve been studying and writing about Canada’s privacy legislation and how it doesn’t adequately protect our privacy in the digital age. I believe this work is important and has the potential to benefit vulnerable sectors of the population who are at risk for digital privacy violations.
Last summer, I worked with students and a professor to translate vague user terms and conditions from commonly used websites and explored the benefits of creating a legal age for digital consent. The aim is to help ensure that users of all ages and levels of digital literacy will understand what companies are doing with their information.
Because of your generosity, I was able to participate in the Managing Organization Records conference in Chicago in May. Thank you for supporting the Faculty of Information.
