Equity & Diversity
What Equity Means at U of T?
At the University of Toronto (U of T), we believe that enhancing the diversity of our staff, students and faculty to reflect our local and global community is a source of strength.
Through our equity programs, services and offices, we are working to remove a range of barriers and support our community members in fulfilling their academic, research and employment goals.
Equity officers advise the president, the vice-president of Human Resources & Equity, the academic and students’ vice-provosts and other senior administrators on how U of T can best realize its commitment to equity, diversity and human rights, and provide guidance on specific issues as they arise.
Equity offices also provide resources and conduct education and awareness initiatives. Please contact offices directly.

Acknowledgment of Traditional Land
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
