Do you ever feel like an imposter or that you don’t belong at university? Have you experienced a barrier that led to you feel self-doubt about your academic ability? Let’s have a conversation.
Join identity and learning workshops to share experiences navigating U of T and to better understand how feelings of exclusion may impact learning and academic engagement.
We also offer specific workshops during the fall/winter academic sessions that focus on building community, strengthening self-awareness, and offering practical learning strategies to help students feel supported and empowered.
Register for individual workshops under PROGRAM REGISTRATION.
All undergraduate, graduate and second-entry professional students
How The Program Works
Identity & Learning workshops include:
Navigating Academics as a Racialized Person – Virtual Learning Strategist Drop Ins
These sessions are welcome to all students, however, this conversational space encourages students to think about the intersections between racial identity and learning.
Drop in dates/times will vary according to the academic session. Please view the Academic Success calendar under PROGRAM REGISTRATION to learn more about our offerings and to register on CLNx.
Navigating Academics as a Racialized Person – Workshop Series
There are 3 workshops in this series which run throughout the fall and winter sessions. They offer a safer space for students to speak about their own lived experiences with identity and learning and are led by a learning strategist and co-facilitated by peer mentors. Find community through storytelling and learn about how identity can impact academic performance, learning strategies, and a work/life balance.
- Feeling like an Imposter (dates for fall/winter 2023-2024 to be determined).

How Identity Impacts Learning
We offer various workshop collaborations with equity offices on campus, such as the Anti-Racism, Diversity and Culture Office (ARDCO), Accessibility Services and the Sexual Gender Diversity Office (SGDO) to explore how you have been impacted by feelings of exclusion on campus, and discuss learning strategies so you how you can feel supported and thrive.
