Academic Advocacy

“The Academic Advocacy office is here for you!”

We aim to protect and serve all UTM students and uphold the rights set out by the University of Toronto. We are here to provide support for any academic issues that students face.

Let’s break down that lengthy code of conduct and put it into student English for you, concerns or questions about academic work or policies? We can answer them. We encourage strong faculty and student relationships and know a thing or two about those administrative situations you may want some one on one support. When tough situations arise such as academic appeals or offences, it is easy to feel lost in this vast network, and that’s where we come in!

The issues that we are here to provide help with include;

·         Academic offences

·         Academic appeals

·         Academic advice

·         Upholding U of T policy

·         Protecting students taken advantage of by any matter

·         Challenging and implementing new polices at both divisional and central levels.

Our door is always open to any student in need of support, guidance, a second pair of eyes, or just a sounding board for dealing with these challenges. We know how tough it can be to engage the school system and we want to assist you in that experience.

For more information please call or email us to schedule an appointment!
