Transforming the Future

What would you do with over $100,000 to Transform the Future at Centennial College?

The Centennial College Student Association Inc. (CCSAI) introduced the ‘Transforming the Future’ (TTF) fee in September 2006 to fund capital projects that will have a positive impact on the student experience at Centennial. TTF has sponsored projects such as the water bottle refilling stations at all campuses, microwaves in all cafeterias, the Progress bus shelter and ergonomic chairs in two Story Arts Centre classrooms. Each project has enhanced the quality of the student experience and underpinned Centennial’s Mission, Vision and Values and our work with the College’s strategic plan entitled Our Book of Commitments (Second Edition).

Do you have an idea that will transform the future of Centennial? We’d like to hear it! Proposals will be reviewed by a cross-college committee with membership from the CCSAI and the College’s leadership team to ensure that they reflect the College’s mission, vision, and values and are financially viable. Approval is given to proposals that meet the criteria below and are mutually acceptable to all committee members.

Interested Centennial College staff and students are invited to submit their proposals by e-mail to vamin@centennialcollege.ca by 3 p.m. on January 20, 2017, with the subject line ‘TTF Proposal 2017’.

Six Easy Steps to Submit a Proposal
  1. Outline your proposal (500 words or less) – explaining what it is, how it will work and how your ideas will come together and be delivered;
  2. Describe (250 words or less) how the proposal will positively impact the student experience at Centennial and touch the lives of as many students as possible; 
  3. Include a general budget including expense for establishment of the project, and any on-going expense/maintenance.
  4. Relate your proposal to one of the Eight Goals within the Book of Commitments (2nd edition)
  5. Identify which areas/departments/other projects that may be impacted by your project.
  6. If submitted by a staff member – the proposal must receive a supporting signature from their manager and if submitted by a student – the proposal must receive a supporting signature from a member of the CCSAI Board or Staff.

First Impressions

First Impressions (previously EcoDepot) is a service that provides students with access to professional clothes for job interviews and workplaces. Not only does it make fashion accessible to all students, but it’s also a very Earth-friendly way to “shop”! First Impressions returns this semester with the same great service, but with a brand new look and new space. First Impressions is a student clothing depot offering previously loved separates and accessories for men and women suitable for job interviews and the workplace – at no cost to our students! Staff onsite can assist with styling and outfit coordination.

Where can you find us?

In our newly renovated Student Centre Lower Level at Progress Campus.


Come and join us Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., and check out our new space and latest arrivals!

How can students take advantage of the First Impressions?

First Impressions is open to all students who want to make a good ‘first impression’ at interviews or on the job, FREE of charge! Access to the First Impressions requires a valid student card (or timetable for CE students).

Want to donate to a great cause? Did you clean out your closet this weekend?

We accept donations for professional, previously loved clothing (clean and in good-repair) all year round. We welcome donations of the following items – suits, dress pants, skirts, dress shirts/blouses, ties, belts, shoes, handbags and other accessories. Donations can be dropped off at CCSAI offices located at the Progress, Ashtonbee, Morningside and SAC Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you’re interested in participating in this unique approach to making Centennial green while providing our students with the clothing they need to feel confident in a work environment, please email Toni Ellul at tellul@centennialcollege.ca.
