Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Student Success

Student Success Initiative

At Ontario Tech University, student success is an important, university-wide conversation, involving faculty, staff, and students. Learn about the current initiatives started by the university community, the reason behind our approach, and how you can get involved in supporting student success.

The Student Success Committee’s purpose is to identify and remove barriers for students who have a demonstrable desire to succeed. This collaborative committee has the responsibility to provide a cross functional forum for dialogue and communication about issues related to student success. The committee will serve to identify, plan, develop, implement and evaluate student success strategies collaboratively in order to achieve the measures of increased student success and program completion.

Feature initiatives

Student success initiatives are happening all around campus, and we are happy to feature just a few of them on this site. Learn about how faculty, staff, and students are working together on projects such as:
