Our commitment to inclusive excellence attracts the brightest learners, scholars, and employees from around the globe. Our success has been made possible by the opportunity given to us by our Indigenous hosts to operate on their territory, and we cherish our continuing partnerships with these communities.
The University of Toronto has committed to an expansion of experiential learning opportunities for students, to enhance both the student learning experience and the University’s ability to support broader community and societal needs.
