Message to Graduate Chairs, Graduate Coordinators and Administrative Staff

Dear Graduate Chairs, Graduate Coordinators and Administrative Staff,

We realize many may be feeling the effects of information overload, but we have been receiving calls that faculty are not getting the most updated information and are not aware of information being sent to graduate students. Please disseminate in a timely fashion all relevant emails you receive regarding COVID19 to your faculty and admin staff.

It would also be prudent to share with your faculty and staff that :

  • Faculty of Medicine messages are consolidated by group on this landing page.
  • School of Graduate Studies messages are posted here and UofT wide messages, including FAQS, can be found here.

We also encourage everyone to sign up for UofT Alerts.

Information about teaching and related resources can also be found at the Centre for Teaching Support and Innovation.

As you can imagine, the COVID19 situation is now extremely fluid at both the university, municipal, provincial and federal level.  We are all doing our best to provide the most updated information and in that attempt, we have become inundated with too much information, making it difficult to sort through what is the most pressing and relevant.   We will all continue to do our best and appreciate any communication from the department that may arise in the days ahead so that GLSE can act accordingly and swiftly to ensure information is disseminated as widely as possible.

Thank you for your continuing patience and understanding during this very stressful time.   


Allan Kaplan
