Resources for U of T Graduate Engineering Students

Feeling distressed? There’s help.
If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre (Grad CRC):

Connect confidentially with one of our trained G2G Peer Advisors (G2G=grad-to-grad) to talk about options and strategies for addressing a concern and university supports and resources. G2G do not intervene or advocate – they listen and can help you to navigate your own way forward. Book an appointment here: http://gradcrc.utoronto.ca/

If you are a staff or faculty member, you can refer students to the G2G Peer Advisors and/or contact the Grad CRC directly to discuss early and effective conflict resolution strategies and opportunities for skills development and training for your department.
