Belonging at U of T

Our commitment to EDI

We continue to advance an inclusive, diverse and equitable U of T, where everyone belongs. This is a shared responsibility, which requires us to foster an inclusive community, invest in our people and promote a positive institutional culture.

Diversity, inclusion, respect, and civility are among our fundamental values. Outstanding scholarship, teaching, and learning can thrive only in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people and encourages the free expression of their diverse perspectives.

If you are experiencing discrimination or harassment and you would like additional support, we encourage you to reach out to the staff in our Equity Offices.
