Founded in 1827, the University of Toronto is very much like the Toronto region itself: a large, multicultural community with a huge number of opportunities and resources. U of T is organized around neighbourhoods, where smaller gatherings of people come together to learn and think and work and ultimately make those major contributions that address the great global challenges of our time.

The University of Toronto is dedicated to fostering an academic community in which the learning and scholarship of every member may flourish, with vigilant protection for individual human rights, and a resolute commitment to the principles of equal opportunity, equity and justice.
