How to Find On-campus Partners


Industry Partner

As an industry partner, you can find students available to work with your organizations through internships, co-ops, or professional practicums. Not ready to hire a student for a full work-term? You may want to consider connecting with students through an organization-partnered project, a simulated work experience, or an entrepreneurship initiative at the University of Toronto.

Below are some potential starting points as you seek the ideal on-campus partner:

Community Partner

Community-engaged learning seeks to create mutually beneficial partnerships between students, instructors, and community, non-profit, or public organizations. You may be interested in connecting with students through Community-Engaged Learning projects, course-connected placements, or for a few days of work on a project as part of Alternative Reading Week.

Research Partner

Research is not only something that takes place in the classroom, library, or laboratory. The University of Toronto is Canada’s leading research institution and our students are dedicated to building upon that reputation by working with research partners. Not only will your organization get skilled students to help on a research project, you’ll also be adding students trained in cutting-edge research to your existing team.

We recommend connecting with the Innovations, Partnerships & Entrepreneurship group within the Office of Research and Innovation to discuss potential partnership opportunities.
