Faculty of Law's Global Professional Master of Laws program launches concentration in law of leadership

Navigating today’s ever evolving, increasingly complex human rights and health and safety legislation can be treacherous for even the most informed employers and managers.
“The legal obligations on employers are much more robust than they used to be,” says Faculty of Law alumna and adjunct professor Emma Phillips. “Employees are much more aware of what their rights and protections are, particularly in the wake of #MeToo.”

Global Engineering Week aims to inspire students to think beyond their borders

Global Engineering Week, which takes place next week, will challenge students at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering to think critically about how they can make a difference on the world stage.


“What I really studied the most and really focused on has been the technology of the human being, and our culture and society, not the digital society. That was instilled in me by my mentors."

The college system

All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (St. George) campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
