Ryerson University is on a transformational course. Our scholarly, research and creative activity (SRC) funding has doubled in the past six years and increased by more than 40% over the past two years. 

SRC at Ryerson is richly diverse and reflects the wide range of programs and expertise of our faculty. We are strengthening our key research themes, which are: Digital Media; Energy, Sustainability, & the Environment; Health & Well-Being; Civil Society; Design, Creative Expression, & Cultural Industries; and Innovation.

Ryerson has been ahead of the curve in undertaking research, which solves real-world problems in the community, in government and in the private sector. Our approach to market-driven innovation has attracted international attention and has open doors to new partnerships.

We are also a leader in integrating teaching and research and provide extensive opportunities to engage undergraduate and graduate students
to participate in research projects. Our focus on experiential learning also provides ample opportunities to integrate research into the curriculum.

Our reputation is extending beyond our university and Canada's borders. We have greatly expanded our work internationally, strengthening and deepening relationships with excellent institutions worldwide. We currently have over 140 partner institutions in 35 countries providing broad range of opportunities for research collaboration and student exchange.

Ryerson University’s achievements in SRC activity, and our focus on students and partnerships, give us a great place from which to continue to build on the transformational momentum that has brought us to this point.
