Support student success
The world is changing faster than ever, and technology is reshaping how we live and make our living. You can help us prepare our students for success in a world of constant reinvention.
The idea of secure jobs and lifelong careers are feeling like artifacts of another era. The ability to solve problems and lead change are the defining skills of the 21st-century job market. This is why we teach our students how to think, not what to think, and challenge them to tackle complex ideas, concepts, and problems. We also encourage them to work creatively and productively in teams and open their minds to varied cultures and viewpoints—competencies that will enrich their lives for years to come.
We do so in an environment that prizes excellence, wellness, diversity, and belonging for equity-deserving communities. Since 1998, the University’s policy on student financial support has been that no student admitted to a program at U of T “should be unable to enter or complete it due to lack of financial means.” We have also pioneered several programs and pathways to help bright students from underserved communities realize their dreams of studying at a top-ranked university. This commitment to inclusive excellence sets us apart from other elite universities and creates an incredibly rich environment for research, teaching, innovation, and social impact.
The University believes in empowering students with the skills, mindset and confidence needed to build successful careers, lead change, and make a positive difference in their communities. Your generosity will help us create life-changing spaces, supports, and opportunities for these students and provide them with the creative and analytical tools needed to thrive in a complex and ever-changing world.
