STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
The University of Toronto has received further guidance on the Ontario government’s directive to let students opt out of fees for many student societies and services.?
The new policy, to take effect in September, allows post-secondary students to withdraw from non-tuition fees considered non-essential.
But according to information provided to universities this week, fees related to health and counselling, athletics and recreation, and academic support services are among those that will remain compulsory.
Resilience, adaptability, empathy. These are some of the attributes that the University of Toronto aims to foster in its current and future students. And as it looks to build on the strengths of its undergraduate programs, U of T wants to hear from you.
The university is asking students, staff, faculty and alumni for feedback on how to best prepare undergraduates for a lifetime of success and fulfilment, whether they want to continue their studies or enter the workforce directly?after graduation.

“Coming into U of T with an economics mindset and leaving with a sociology, political science and economics background changed my life. They all tackle global poverty, aid and development, but from very different schools of thought."
