The University of Toronto is extensively engaged in Latin America through learning abroad, graduate training, research and continuing education partnerships. These relationships span a range of partners from government agencies and universities to industry and civil society organizations. The University of Toronto’s strategy in the region is guided by the President’s International Council on Latin America and the Caribbean. U of T is also a member of Canada’s CALDO consortium of universities. CALDO, through agreements with government agencies in Latin America, recruits and trains graduate students in a diverse range of fields. U of T offers learning abroad opportunities in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Dominican Republic, Peru and Ecuador to name a few. U of T researchers have also established high impact collaborations in the region through initiatives like the Structural Genomics Consortium.
Please note: The regional pages on this website provide but a snapshot of the rich and deep relationships that the U of T community enjoys with many countries, institutions, communities and partners around the world.
Across the University of Toronto community, staff and students engage in collaborative work with many institutions in Latin America. The below highlights the ones with which we currently have a strategic, institutional partnership that includes joint funding and programmatic opportunities. U of T, through the Office of the Vice-President, International, builds institutional partnerships with peer institutions where there is evidence of strong, existing faculty-to-faculty engagement and collaboration already in place.
National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM): UNAM is one of U of T’s key partners in the Americas. Collaborations with UNAM range from learning abroad and the North American Colloquium, which focuses on cooperation on topical issues for the region, to an International Doctoral Cluster in LGBTQ wellbeing (see Current IDCs). There are also a number of emerging areas of collaborations, like in the field of clean energy materials.
