What We Do
The University of Toronto’s VPSEM Team works to support the recruitment, enrolment, and retention of a diverse, dynamic, and academically robust group of students from Canada and across the globe. VPSEM works closely and collaboratively with the Academic Divisions across the three campuses to help develop, implement, and execute data-informed plans, policies and practices which support the application, matriculation, and continued support of undergraduate students.
Cognizant of a rapidly evolving and increasingly competitive global marketplace, the VPSEM division, by way of innovation, research, and experience, endeavours to facilitate the provision that every University of Toronto student, from the time they are a prospect until graduation, has a transformational experience. Toward that end, we strive to provide the highest levels of service delivered by all the teams within the VPSEM portfolio: University Admissions and Outreach (Recruitment and Admissions); the University Registrar’s Office (Student Financial Aid and Awards, Student Systems, Client Services, Records and Student Accounts); and Learning Space Management.
We maintain that cultural diversity is a necessary component of an enriched student experience and a vital part of the University of Toronto’s institutional mission, we are committed to furthering progress in the realm of strategic enrolment management with a dedication to inclusive excellence.

The URO works with faculty and divisional registrars to support undergraduate and graduate students throughout the student life cycle and is an advocate and service provider for University of Toronto students and tri-campus registrarial services.
The URO develops university-wide policies, guidelines and procedures, maintains the official student record, and oversees the student information system to support the university mission and enhance the student experience.
University Admissions and Outreach
The University Admissions and Outreach (UAO) team includes the Office of Student Recruitment (OSR) and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (OA). OSR and OA collaborate with a variety of internal and external stakeholders to serve as central, specialized resources for recruitment and enrolment planning across the University of Toronto’s direct-entry landscape.
