Susannah Bunce teaching


More than 220 faculty members and researchers at the University of Toronto are engaged in a wide variety of cities-focused research and teaching. Urban research takes place at all three of our campuses, and includes the Faculties of Architecture, Arts & Science, Education, Law, Medicine, Public Health, and Social Work.  Cities@UofT includes directories to help connect users to our programs, resources & research, and people.

Our faculty members are active in local, regional, national and international research networks as evidenced by the plethora of funded scholars, research, labs and institutes with an urban focus.  The Neighbourhood Change Research Partnership is an example of a $2.5M research initiative housed at UofT that provides national and international thought leadership on urban inequality.  The Centre for Urban Health Solutions, the Global Cities Institute, the Green Roof Innovation Testing Laboratory, the Martin Prosperity Institute, the University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute, and the Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership have relationships and reputations that are both local and global in their reach.
