          Scott Mabury: “The most important objective is to improve the function and experience for students and all members of the U of T community”

          Arthur Kaptainis

          A comprehensive plan to improve operations and maximize efficiency has shaved $54 million off operating expenses at the University of Toronto, allowing these funds to be repurposed for new academic and service initiatives.

          This number is not only $4 million beyond the original operational excellence target of $50 million but one year ahead of schedule, Operations Vice-President Scott Mabury told the Tri-Campus Vice-Presidents Group recently.

          “Sexual violence will not be tolerated on our campuses.”

          Barb Gormley didn’t know that strangers could track her fitness tracker. Or that anyone could rip off personal data leaking from the device.

          The personal trainer and her clients use the exercise-boosting devices to record steps taken, calories burned and other data about their progress when working out.

          “People are hooked on them,” she said. “I feel like I have a training assistant.”

          But the machines also leak personal information – such as name, age and gender – communicated via wifi.

          “So we brought them to the University, showed them around and said ‘there are people like you here – people making change.’ Right there you see it has an effect on them.”

          Serena Zhang remembers how she felt the first time she flew into Toronto: excited to be starting an undergraduate program at U of T, but confused and lost at Pearson International Airport. It would take her a half hour to find a currency exchange before she could get a taxi.

          “I just kept wandering,” Zhang says. “Since I was really shy and not confident in my English at that time, I was really scared to ask for help.”
