Academic Affairs Officers

Stephanie Abba (Upper Year Academic Affairs Officer)

Stephanie is a part-time student who hopes to graduate in 2017. She's in the LIS concentration with a background as a library technician with over 8 years of work experience at U of T libraries. She currently works full-time as a researcher and web editor in Canadian history.

A member of MISC since 2014 (Faculty Council Rep, Information Services Committee Rep, co-chair of the Part-Time Students Working Group) Stephanie is now your Academic Affairs Chair and thus serves as a point of contact for students experiencing academic or curricular issues. Please email, tweet (@sfabba) or chat with her in the iSchool!

When she's not doing work-work or school-work, Stephanie is an aspiring knitter-cyclist-runner (not all at once) and she likes to travel, watch sports, read, and hang out with her husband.

Lily Ren (First Year Academic Affairs Officer)

Lily is a first year MI candidate in the Library and Information Science concentration. She serves as the First Year Academic Affairs Officer along with numerous past experiences serving on student associations at the University of Toronto. She completed her Honours Bachelor of Arts in 2016 with a double major in Book and Media Studies and Health Studies, and a minor in Human Geography at UofT. As a member of MISC, she hopes to strengthen the student community and facilitate communication between students, faculty, and staff enduring that each student’s experience at the iSchool is enjoyable and edifying.
In her spare time, Lily enjoys hiking, kayaking, and traveling. She hopes one day she’ll be able to visit Italy and eat her heart’s desire of pizzas, pastas, and gelati. Please feel free to get in touch with Lily on academic matters, student life, or a chat about anything of your interest.
