Academic Success Programs and Peer Support
Access and Inclusion Peer Programs
Access and Inclusion Peer Programs is a mentorship program that helps first-year students belonging to historically marginalized, minority or underrepresented group(s). This program pairs new students with experienced upper-year mentors to help them avoid potential barriers to success, access and inclusion at U of T.
Our mentors can help students who identify as Indigenous, African/Black/Caribbean, LGBTTI2QQ+, a first-generation student (the first person in a family to attend post-secondary studies), or a member of an underrepresented religious or spiritual group.
This program offers students one-on-one meetings with a mentor and a series of events and workshops to connect students to each other and the U of T community!
Graduate Writing Group: a writing space for grad students
Are you a graduate student determined to write and defend your dissertation before your funding package expires? Do you find it difficult to maintain a consistent writing schedule? Would you like to commit to writing regularly? Join a community of peers who share your experience and can help keep you accountable.
Fresh Start Conference
Now is your time to thrive. Attend a Fresh Start workshop or the Fresh Start conference for students who have experienced academic struggles at U of T.
Study Hubs offer quiet study time for students to work on whatever they have to do. Peers facilitate regularly scheduled Hubs across campus every week, in which students can set and meet their individual goals to find academic success in a supportive community.
