Dean's Welcome

On behalf of the School of Graduate Studies, welcome to the University of Toronto. I encourage you to make the most of your graduate experience this year by engaging with our top-ranked faculty, who are immersed in innovative research in all disciplines; connecting and collaborating with others in the graduate community; and taking advantage of opportunities with leading hospitals, industries, community organizations, and educational facilities across North America.

In the SGS Calendar, we outline the parameters of your program, the regulations and policies that guide it, and some of the key expectations that will inform your time here. SGS also offers a range of graduate-focussed services designed to support you holistically at every stage of your graduate program. I encourage you to explore the SGS website, read the monthly Gradschool e-news, and stay connected to your communities as you explore and advance your knowledge and interests in the year ahead. 

I wish you the best in your studies and look forward to supporting your journey,

Joshua Barker
