Reports and Accountability
The University of Toronto reports annually on the progress of our strategic activities in relation to all levels of government, other public sector institutions, the private sector and community partners. Our reports cover key data about the university’s accountability and performance.
The Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and the University of Toronto signed a Strategic Mandate Agreement for the years 2014-2017:
Every year, the University of Toronto makes a large amount of updated data available about its performance. The following reports measure our progress and achievements towards key goals:
An annual Performance Indicators Report has been presented to the University of Toronto Governing Council since 1998. The University continues to be a leader in the post-secondary sector in Ontario in providing reports of this nature as part of our accountability to governance. The indicators in these reports have changed over the years as we have expanded the scope of areas that we have sought to measure, have enhanced our data collection and created partnerships with other institutions and agencies that allow for external benchmarking.
2015 (text-only version)
The Performance Indicator Report is part of a much larger set of reports received by Governing Council and its Boards and Committees.
There is also a significant system of program, department and faculty reviews that assesses the strength and quality of our activities. The Performance Indicators report reflects a very small and selected view of the quality of the institution that is much more apparent in these in-depth appraisals. The reviews are presented and discussed annually by the Committee on Academic Programs and Policy.

CUDO complements the extensive information already offered by Ontario's universities, such as:
- eINFO, a comprehensive guide to Ontario's universities for secondary school students, available at www.electronicinfo.ca.
- Ontario Universities' Application Centre, a central resource for students considering or applying to one of Ontario's universities.
- Ontario Universities' Fair, a one-stop event held in the Fall, offering students an opportunity to speak with representatives from all across the province about programs, campus life, and anything else that will help them make a decision about which university to choose.
- The University Information Program, offering information sessions to high school students across the province.
As CUDO provides general program information, if you want specific program information, please go to eINFO. It will provide you with information on each university's programs, including admission requirements.
What kind of information can I find on CUDO?
CUDO offers key data, in a common format, about Ontario's universities:

- Student satisfaction;
- First-year tuition and ancillary fees by program;
- Number of teaching faculty;
- Undergraduate class size, by year level;
- Research awards granted; and

CUDO has been designed to allow users to access -- and if they wish, to compare – data that have been gathered on a consistent basis.
