Statement on the Conflict in the Middle East

October 12, 2023

Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) condemns terrorism and stands against attacks on civilians. We grieve with our community for the immense loss of life in the Middle East.

Over the past few days, we have been actively reaching out to our students, faculty and staff as well as community groups who have been impacted by these horrible events. If you are in need of assistance, please know that help is available:

TMU’s International Student Support team has been in contact with students with ties to the region to offer direct support and access to appropriate resources. Any of our international students in need of support can call 1-844-451-9700 or email

TMU strongly condemns all acts of violence, hate and discrimination. We will not tolerate anti-Semitic or anti-Muslim rhetoric or racism of any kind in our community. As this crisis continues to unfold, TMU remains committed to supporting the wellbeing of our community and to our values of equity, diversity and inclusion, encouraging the open exchange of ideas and respectful dialogue on our campus. We stand with the international community in the call for a peaceful resolution.
