The University of Toronto is committed to creating an inclusive teaching and learning environment aligned with provincial guidelines for academic accommodations. The University’s guidelines are outlined in our Statement of Commitment Regarding Persons with Disabilities (PDF).
Faculty and staff are essential partners in the academic accommodation process. Accessibility Services works with faculty and staff to provide the academic accommodations that support a fair and inclusive learning environment for undergraduate and graduate students. The accommodations process must maintain safety for the student and others and maintain the academic standards that all students must demonstrate.
