About Toronto Metropolitan

At the intersection of mind and action, Toronto Metropolitan University is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.

We welcome those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

In April 2022, the university announced our new name of Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach. Learn more about our next chapter.

The team
TMU’s Faculty of Arts connects academic excellence with relevant results, encouraging active and critical minds. We stimulate awareness for better understanding through
examination of the past and present, both locally and globally. Through collaboration and inclusion – of diverse ideas, people, and cultures – we inform innovative policy and
drive positive change for community and individual empowerment.

Housed within the Faculty of Arts, the Democratic Engagement Exchange (The Exchange) builds partnerships with academic institutions, community organizations and
government agencies to create tools and champion policies and programs that promote a more inclusive democracy.
