Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

The Department of Medical Biophysics and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Toronto are committed to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in all that we do. This includes:

  • recruiting students, faculty, and staff that reflect the diversity of our society.
  • maintaining an environment of equity and fairness where all can work and learn.
  • assuring that our programs and curricula prepare our graduates to meet the needs of the diverse communities they will serve in their careers in Canada and around the world.

EDI Resources

The Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre is a partnership between the School of Graduate Studies, Student Life and the UTGSU. Through the centre, graduates students can talk confidentially to a member of the G2G Peer Advisor team about resources available to support grad students, conflict resolution strategies, and options for dealing effectively with any issue or dispute, including issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion. Individual appointments can be booked at the G2G Website.
