Both these student groups offer many opportunities to get involved in their local governance, as well as being part of the Boards and Committees that make up our Innis College Council. The IRC and ICSS host and fund a number of clubs, groups and social activities, including Innis Athletics, the Innis Choir, the Friday Night Gamers, Improv Club, the Environmental Committee, Yearbook, Photography Club, and Open Mic Nights, among others.

Founded in 1965, the Innis Herald is Innis College’s monthly newspaper. They strive to provide sophisticated, substantial, and unconventional discussion of college, campus and citywide issues. By virtue of the college’s programs and population, there is a particular focus on the arts, culture and writing.
The Herald’s mandate is to encourage critical thought and participation within our readership and in the wider University of Toronto campus and community. It is a place for discussion of ideas, opinions and thoughts that are usually not emphasized in other student newspapers or on campus.
The Innis Review is an annual interdisciplinary undergraduate publication based at Innis College. Organized by students, it aspires to deliver to the university population an accessible journal showcasing high quality academic writing, as demonstrated by Innis College students and those affiliated with its many college-based programmes.
Submission of work is open to all undergraduate Innis College students, as well as engineering students living in the Innis Residence. Students enrolled in an Innis-based course (INI course codes) are also encouraged to submit work from any of these courses.
Is there something you would like to see at Innis College? Both the Office of Student Life and the Innis College Student Society would love to hear from you!
