(Updated June 30, 2020)
The 2020-21 academic year will be different at the University of Toronto. Our community of students, faculty and staff will learn, teach, research and work in new ways. But what won’t change is our shared commitment to creating rich, inclusive environments for learning, and to pursuing research that unlocks solutions to global challenges, while protecting the health and safety of every member of our community.
Please note that all classes in FIFSW’s MSW program and PhD program will proceed remotely in the fall due to the need to continue physical distancing in the wake of the pandemic. Our instructors continue to undertake intensive training to improve online course delivery, investing time and effort to make sure they can do it as best as possible.
