Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to the University of Toronto Scarborough, where inclusive excellence is our hallmark and where the remarkable contributions by our faculty, staff and students augment the University of Toronto’s standing among an exclusive group of top-ranked universities in the world.

We are always mindful of the fact that our success has been made possible by the awesome opportunity given to us by our host Indigenous communities to operate on their territory. We are grateful for that generosity and cherish our continuing partnerships with them.

Our commitment to inclusive excellence has made us a destination of choice for very talented learners and employees from around the globe. Our students, faculty, and staff engage in and/or support leading edge scholarship in diverse fields, thereby sustaining a vibrant intellectual community where we strive every day to inspire boundless ingenuity, address the pressing issues of our day, and generate solutions that are boundless in their impact.

We pride ourselves on being a campus that is committed to providing equitable access to high quality learning, teaching, and research for talented individuals from various backgrounds and supporting them to succeed. We know that the coming together of such minds in a healthy working and learning environment, where we all feel a strong sense of belonging, enriches what we do as an academic institution.

Our approach to learning and scholarship is anchored in values that attract, develop and support citizens and leaders with a social conscience, an intercultural perspective, a global outlook, and a commitment to the communities that sustain them. It is for this reason that we are a partner of choice for a wide array of supporters and collaborators, with whom we work in a spirit of reciprocity, to extend the benefits of the excellent work that is taking place on our campus.

We are very committed to sustaining our position as a catalyst and an anchor institution for socio-economic development in our region and beyond. We continue to grow and strengthen collaboration with our friends and supporters (individuals, community organizations, businesses, industry, and various levels of government) to support our mission.

There is tremendous energy, enthusiasm, and passion here at U of T Scarborough, but the possibilities that lie ahead are even more exciting. Be our partner on this journey, whether you are a current or prospective student, faculty, staff, alum, or supporter. Through our work together and our shared commitment to inspiring inclusive excellence, we will deliver possibilities that are boundless.
