The group supports the broader SFI & sLab communities at OCAD University since 2009 through a subscribable, listserv-type member-supported community list.
As of 2021 the list may be summarized as follows:
Membership is opt-in, and offered to participants and stakeholding supporters of the SFI & sLab communities. The group especially recruits and welcomes new and current SFI students, for whom it may offer co-curricular enrichment opportunities, and alumni, whose differing needs are currently being investigated.
The OCADSFI Google group was founded in September 2009 by Spencer Saunders and Susan Gorbet from the first SFI cohort. On behalf of the community our thanks go to all volunteer group managers over the years including Spencer Saunders, Susan Gorbet, Gabe Sawney, Trevor Haldenby, George Wang, Ryan Murphy, Ricardo Vasquez, Zaid Khan and other stalwart souls.
