Office of the President
Message from Sheldon Levy
Welcome to Ryerson, where every year brings exciting progress.
The reputation of the university continues to grow, built on the talent of its people, the ingenuity of its unique spaces and the strength of its dreams.
In all academic disciplines, our undergraduate and graduate students are challenging the status quo with intellectual edge and creative vision, inspired by the Ryerson mission of making an impact on our economy, society and culture.
Ryerson is now identified as the leader in Canada for innovation and entrepreneurial education, and among the leaders in the world. Investing traditional programs and research with the perspective and tools of our 21st-century world, our direction is focused and bold.
It takes courage to be a pioneer, and hard work to be a champion. You are part of a great university intent on advancing our city, nation and global community in a sit-up-and-take-notice kind of way.
Part of that will be watching our Student Learning Centre rising from the ground this year on Yonge Street, joining the iconic award-winning Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens and the Ryerson Image Centre which opened last year.
You are the measure of our goals, and the proof of what we can do. All the very best for a great year.
