Initiatives

Accommodated Tests and Exams

Following consultation with a cross section of students, instructors, staff and senior leadership, Accommodated Testing Services (ATS) is bringing accommodated tests and exams services to the next level, implementing new processes and technology to support a growing need at the University.

Users will find the process transparent, seamless and intuitive, providing easy online access to information through pre-existing University platforms.

Compensation Planning Tool

This new tool will better meet departmental and divisional needs for accurate, multi-year compensation planning, and will improve the University’s long-range operating budget process – a process that accounts for 70 per cent of the University’s total expenditures.

Digital Workplace Intune Migration

This year, the University of Toronto’s Digital Workplace team will migrate its clients’ computers to Microsoft Intune, a powerful cloud-based mobile device management service, from its legacy Managed Desktop Service. The migration to Intune will introduce a modern desktop experience for a modern workplace.

Secure U of T Advanced Threat Protections

Information Security is applying advanced Microsoft 365 Defender security features to a subset of staff and faculty at the University. These security features will provide an added layer of protection to Microsoft 365 accounts and will safeguard the community against malicious threats posed by attachments, links and documents.
