Online Community Guidelines

This online space is an extension of the U of T community, and when you use it, you commit to respecting these Online Community Guidelines, in addition to the U of T Student Code of Conduct, which are intended to foster a high quality and safe environment for all members of the community.

We strive to create an inspiring, supportive, and fun community and to share information that we believe will be important to you as users of this program.


We welcome open and respectful discussions, and promise to listen to your feedback, answer your questions to the best of our ability, and to be transparent. We encourage members of our community to take part through likes, comments, and other forms of constructive and positive engagement. We look forward to engaging in these discussions, but our online spaces are monitored by our team only twice a week. Please take a look at each forum to determine when spaces are monitored.

The comments and responses which may appear in our forums come from members of this community, and their content (including opinions and statements) does not necessarily reflect the opinions or position of the University of St. Michael's College; the individuals who engage on our platforms are responsible for the content that they post.

The University of St. Michael's College reserves the right to moderate any communications that do not adhere to these guidelines and to other applicable policies, including blocking and/or reporting violations. We will not tolerate the following posts, comments, and other communications or behaviour:

  • Abusive, harassing, lewd, stalking, trolling, threatening or attacking others, containing depictions of alcohol or drug abuse, or promoting illegal activity of any kind

  • Defamatory, offensive, obscene, vulgar or depicting violence

  • Containing hateful language or targeting race, ethnic group, nationality, socioeconomic status, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, language, religious affiliation, or age

  • Fraudulent, deceptive or misleading

  • Deliberately disruptive

  • Promotions, advertising, solicitation, or spam

  • Revealing personal or confidential information without consent


If you violate these guidelines, you may be subject to sanctions as outlined in the University of Toronto Student Code of Conduct and your posts, comments, and other communications or behaviour may also be submitted to law enforcement agencies to prevent fraud or to protect the safety of our community and the public.
