I AM U OF T Video

The “I AM U of T” video is part of the 2015 International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD) Campaign showcasing the voices of racialized students as they talk about how their identities have shaped their experiences at the University of Toronto. The video is intended to shed light on students whose voices and lived experiences often go unheard. The objective of this video is to move beyond stereotypes, to explore the diverse perspectives and lived experiences of racialized students, and to find out how racialized students are claiming space at the University.


The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office is pleased to offer equity training to University of Toronto student leaders in collaboration with many of the University’s other equity offices. We welcome requests throughout the year to facilitate group workshops on the topics of race, racism, anti-racism, and its intersections.
