Research Collaboration with McGill (Summer 2019)
The science department has established a research collaboration with Professor Derek Rosenzweig at the department of experimental surgery at McGill University. The research project is on developing 3D printed scaffolds for bone tissue engineering.
A “Co-op like” program has also been established to involve TAV students in cutting edge research. Science students have the opportunity to apply for a summer internship to work in professor Rosenzweig’s lab at McGill.

27 Ways to Say WelcomeTJDC Staff
The general concept for the mural was the brain child of two members of the TJDC. Eden Autmezguine and Bishal Pandey proposed the idea to me during one of our morning newsletter meetings and I thought it would be a fantastic addition to the College, said Hand-Gregory.The mural itself features precisely what is in the title of this article: Twenty seven various languages. However, at first glance you would not suspect just how tricky the project turned out to be. Justin stated, “The project turned out to be quite difficult as I not only wanted to ensure I incorporated as many languages as possible, but also, that these languages were displayed with correct spelling. Therefore, what we did was put a poster in the main entrance of the college and asked the student body to write “Welcome” in their language. Luckily, we received an entire poster full of responses and as a result we were able to use this data to ensure the wording we displayed was spelled correct and not insulting. The responses we received from students on this poster was also exciting to see as it showed the relevance for the project, as well as the students’ pride in their ethnic heritage and their desire to proudly demonstrate this.” The mural is the first initiative that Justin and the TJDC have completed as a series of projects to enhance the aesthetics of the up-and-coming Montreal college, as well as assisting in dictating a sense of originality and distinction for TAV. The club has a few more ideas that are currently in the “design phase” for more murals and creative projects. The following is a list of languages that are displayed in the mural:

R Score: Changes for the fall 2017 Semester
The modified R score will take effect for the Fall 2017 semester (benchmark calculations in February 13, 2018) and will apply retroactively to all courses taken during the Fall 2014 to Summer 2017 terms (nine semesters,) however, retroactive application will not reduce any course R score obtained before the modified R score was introduced.
