True Blue Recognition Platform 

True Blue Informal Recognitions highlight the practices of exemplary faculty, librarians, and staff who make invaluable contributions to the University every day. The University of Toronto ranks as Canada’s leading institution of learning. It is one of the world’s top research-intensive universities because of our faculty, librarians, and staff’s vital work across our three campuses.

It’s important to recognize those contributions – not just through formal recognition programs but as a part of our day-to-day practice. When our efforts are appreciated and valued, we are more dedicated to the success and better understand how our work contributes to the University’s mission. Expressing gratitude for our colleagues’ work is an integral part of fostering a culture of appreciation and makes the University of Toronto an excellent place to work.

We invite the University Community members to identify those everyday moments when a colleague’s efforts have been outstanding. The True Blue Recognition Platform makes it easy to let them know in real-time!
