“We have great diversity and inclusion policies, they don’t play out all the time.”

Mike Plumton sees his role, as the Training & Programming Coordinator with Student Housing and Residence Life, as a teacher and educator on life: to help others deal with conflict and who they are as a person; as he says, "the stuff that really matters." Mike shares his personal journey and his experience helping others negotiate difference both within and outside of UTSC.
