The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) promotes excellence in graduate education at UofT and ensures that high standards for excellence and integrity are maintained. The SGS and the Innovation Hub worked together in identifying graduate student and postdoctoral fellows’ needs when it comes to receiving “ready access to high-quality supports that enhance the quality of mentorship and supervision and assist individuals experiencing challenges” in a large, research-intensive university.
