EDI at U of T 

Back to Inclusion

Our values as an institution

The University has a longstanding and fundamental commitment to promoting EDI and emphasizes a working and learning environment for everyone. We recognize that a diverse campus and a culture of inclusive excellence are essential parts of the foundation of our institution. From creating pathways for under-represented students to offering anti-racism and bias training for the U of T community, advancing EDI as a shared responsibility is an ongoing process.

Our equity offices support staff, faculty, librarians and students with consultation services, resolution of concerns, as well as training and education. The offices support the campus community in advancing equity from dialogue to action. We strive to embed equity into all our practices and processes.

Equity Policies

We work to ensure all of our workplace policies are inclusive and reflect our commitment to equity and diversity. To learn more, please visit our Policies & Guidelines page.

Thank you for your patience while we add new EDI resources to this page. In the meantime, please find some of our recent materials:

Inclusive Employer Guides

Becoming familiar with our community’s religious and cultural observances is an important part of promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion and ensuring employees feel supported. The Division of People Strategy, Equity & Culture creates Inclusive Employer Guides to help managers familiarize themselves with the meanings and traditions that many in our community celebrate. We encourage everyone to update their scheduling tools annually to reflect these dates. A collection of Inclusive Employer Guides can be found on the new Dates of Recognition, Observance & Celebration webpage.

Additional dates of religious observances may be found in the Multi-Faith Centre’s list of religious and cultural days.
