September 11, 2014

On September 10, 2014, a University of Toronto Senior Lecturer was injured in a serious incident that took place on campus. Injuries are reported to be minor and we are hopeful that our faculty member recovers quickly.

The details of this unfortunate event are currently under investigation by the Toronto Police Services. The University is cooperating fully with that investigation.

The safety and security of all members of the University community is our top priority. Should you have safety concerns please contact Campus Police.
