Experiential Education Office
The Experiential Education Office (EEO) at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) aims to enrich the undergraduate education experience by promoting and nurturing unique opportunities and approaches to learning both within and outside of the classroom. By actively engaging faculty and students in the community, and promoting strong relationships between community partners, faculty, students, academic studies, career exploration and community involvement through academic and outreach experiences to broaden the scope of what it means to study at UTM.
Experiential learning opportunities have been growing in number and scope at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, and encompass many types of practical learning, or "learning by doing." Experiential learning can be paid (cooperative) or unpaid, and can take the form of community service, internship or practicum placement, or project research. Experiences take place in outside agencies or in various on-campus research settings, with faculty and/or community-based supervision. Learning is accomplished both by hands-on work and reflection.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
