Anti-Semitism Working Group 

Back to Inclusion

Anti-Semitism remains a source of discrimination, harassment, and violence today and a threat to all free societies.

About this Initiative

The U of T Anti-Semitism Working Group is an integral part of the University’s commitment to addressing systemic forms of discrimination within its tri-campus community. The Working Group will review programming, activities, processes and practices in place at the University of Toronto and develop recommendations to support the University’s response to anti-Semitism.

The Working Group will provide recommendations to the President, the Vice-President, Human Resources and Equity, and Vice-President & Provost.

You can provide feedback to anti.semitism.working.group@utoronto.ca. Students, faculty, staff, librarians, instructors, and researchers will also be invited to communicate their concerns and recommendations to the Working Group in the coming months.
