Message from the President

An anniversary as significant as 150 years deserves a special celebration, particularly when it is for a country recognized around the world for its diversity, inclusiveness and commitment to equality and justice. Ryerson is proud to present a wide range of activities and events that illuminate the past and look enthusiastically to a future filled with promise for our Canada.

Mohamed Lachemi, President, Ryerson University
