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 is an essential part in the foundation of our institution. From creating pathways for under-represented students, and offering anti-racism and bias training for the U of T community, and 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 the advancement of 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.

Holidays & Religious Observations

These employer guides help managers to familiarize themselves with the meaning and traditions that are celebrated by many in our community. We encourage everyone to update their scheduling tools annually to reflect religious observance dates. Avoid booking meetings and scheduling of events on these dates to the great extent possible.
