The Diversity of the U of T Community is Our Strength
“We believe that excellence flourishes in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people, that helps them to achieve their full potential, that facilitates the free expression of their diverse perspectives through respectful discourse, and in which high standards are maintained for students and staff alike.
An equitable and inclusive working and learning environment creates the conditions for our diverse staff and student body to maximize their creativity and their contributions, thereby supporting excellence in all dimensions of the institution.
Excellence at the University of Toronto is predicated on core freedoms that are at the heart of every university’s mission – freedom of speech and expression, academic freedom and freedom of research.”
The University of Toronto’s strategic priorities provide a framework around three areas of focus for the U of T community. The three priorities are our commitment to achieving the goals set out in the University’s Towards 2030plan: to enhance and strengthen our standing as a globally ranked research powerhouse and leader in research-intensive education.
