Summer Abroad & EDIA

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (EDIA) Resources


The Summer Abroad program is committed to the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. At Summer Abroad, we support all participants in your study abroad experience. We aim to ensure that students are able to participate as they see fit in the learning opportunities and activities that are offered by the Summer Abroad program, and to maximize their potential as members of the program community. In striving to best support EDIA and foster excellence, we are also working to reduce and mitigate any barriers that prevent full participation in the Summer Abroad program.

Our priority at the Summer Abroad program is to work with you and engage relevant partners across U of T to support you on your learning experience abroad. As you review your Summer Abroad options, we strongly encourage you to use the information here to determine the program and location that best suits your interests and needs.

Please contact us at summerabroad.edi@utoronto.ca if you would like assistance navigating our website resources or to meet one of our team members virtually or face-to-face to learn more about your Summer Abroad opportunity. If you have any suggestions or would like to share your feedback, please leave your suggestions in our EDIA Content Feedback Forum,


EDIA Resources for our Student Communities

Exploring a new country and immersing yourself in a different culture can bring about unique challenges and opportunities. We invite you to explore  EDIA resources as you consider Summer Abroad opportunities that meet your needs. 

Summer Abroad Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence Award

The Summer Abroad Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence (EDI) award was created to award University of Toronto undergraduate students participating in the Summer Abroad program, based on academic achievement, financial need and recent contributions to the advancement of equity, diversity and inclusion.
