UTM developed the following statement of our distinctive mission in our 2017 Academic Plan, which we are adopting, with minor revisions, for the 2022 Strategic Framework. We will review and revise this mission after the development of the 2023 Academic Plan.

The University of Toronto Mississauga is an exceptional academic institution in the western part of the Greater Toronto Area, the only research university in the City of Mississauga and the Peel Region. As one of the three campuses of the University of Toronto system, UTM champions the teaching, creation, dissemination, preservation and mobilization of knowledge. UTM is a major contributor to U of T’s reputation as a premier international research university with undergraduate, graduate and professional programs that meet the highest standards of excellence. UTM combines the opportunities afforded by U of T’s standing as a world-leading university; our connections to our vibrant local and to international communities; our naturally beautiful, culturally and ecologically significant location; and our exceptional range of academic programs.
