The 2020-21 academic year will be different at the University of Toronto. Our community of students, faculty and staff will learn, teach, research and work in new ways. But what won’t change is our shared commitment to creating rich, inclusive environments for learning, and to pursuing research that unlocks solutions to global challenges, while protecting the health and safety of every member of our community.

Looking ahead to September 2020: A letter from President Gertler

May 19, 2020

To members of the University of Toronto community: I hope that you and your families are in good health and spirits in these extraordinary and challenging times.

I am writing with an update on the University’s emerging plans for the Fall 2020 semester. Much still remains uncertain. While Ontario has begun a staged approach to reopening the province, it is difficult to predict which stage we will be in when September arrives.

Indeed, with the University of Toronto spread across different parts of the Greater Toronto Area, each of our three campuses may experience unique conditions, requiring distinctive responses. Local context will matter.

Nevertheless, I am acutely aware of our community’s need to plan for the fall, just as I am conscious of the many different concerns and priorities we must balance in making those plans. Accordingly, our planning has focused on three guiding principles: promoting health and safety, advancing academic excellence, and meeting the needs of our community – our students, faculty, librarians, and staff.
