Why is U of T collecting this data?

Excellence flourishes in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people and reflects local communities. The U of T Student Equity Census supports U of T’s commitment to creating inclusive working and learning environments through better understanding the characteristics of our student body.

This initiative aligns with broader institutional efforts that support anti-discrimination and enhanced equity. Such efforts include Answering the Call: Wecheehetowin, U of T’s response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, recent efforts towards Anti-Semitism and Anti-Islamophobia, and the Anti-Black Racism Task Force Report, which emphasizes the importance of collecting demographic data.
