Each year, thousands of undergraduate University of Toronto students learn and contribute to our city-region through community engaged learning, professional internships, and volunteer efforts in a variety of initiatives that support: grassroots community-building, building engineering design solutions to address local problems, harm reduction efforts, assessments of bike lanes and transportation systems, and more.  Annually, every medical student at UofT participates in a service-learning placement.  Hundreds of graduate students enrolled in professional programs including Cities Engineering and Management, Global Affairs, Management of Innovation, Planning, Public Health, and Public Policy partake in required internships each year.
