Why I Chose OISE
Our students are leaders and change-makers from Canada and around the world. Here's what brings them here.
"I was impressed by the impact that OISE's faculty, students and alumni have on education reform in Canada and around the world. Coming from Ghana, I wanted to be part of a positive culture of change for educational language policy. The networks and research opportunities OISE provides have been crucial for reaching towards this goal."
Mama Adobe Nii Owoo, PhD student and winner of the 2019 Adel S. Sedra Distinguished Graduate Award
"OISE is home to the largest group of scholars studying higher education in Canada and I can't think of an institute more equipped to support my research in this area. I love that faculty and students come from around the globe, creating a truly cosmopolitan learning environment."
Jacquie Beaulieu, PhD student
"I was drawn to OISE's learning and teaching environment; an atmosphere that truly nurtured creativity, critical thinking and excellence. OISE prepared me for my career as a scientist."
Alex Abramovich, PhD 2014, Scientist, Institute for Mental Health Policy Research, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and Assistant Professor, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto
"As a first-generation student, I learned that my Indigenous perspective and worldview is very much needed in academia. My OISE degree enabled me to understand, navigate, and apply my knowledge in the work I do as Canada's first Indigenous human resources consultant in the higher education industry."
Tracey King, MEd 2010, Indigenous Human Resources Lead, Ryerson University
