About the School of the Environment


Where Knowledge Meets Action

The School of the Environment brings together multiple perspectives on today's pressing environmental challenges. We're a hub for researchers and students from many different disciplines spanning the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities. Our faculty and instructors are a diverse community collaborating across campuses and beyond. No other university in Canada can offer students the breadth and depth of environmental and sustainability related scholarship found at the University of Toronto.

Our Mission

The School of the Environment is committed to delivering outstanding academic programs on the environment and sustainability by providing students with the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to make a substantive difference in the world. We are focused on creating new knowledge, training future leaders, engaging and forging partnerships with the wider community, and contributing to positive environmental and social change from the local to the global scale.
