70 Years Old. 25 Years Young.
2018 marks a very special double anniversary for Ryerson University. Seventy years ago, in 1948, the Ryerson Institute of Technology was founded under the visionary leadership of Howard H. Kerr. Twenty-five years ago, in 1993, under the exemplary leadership of Terry Grier, Ryerson was granted full university status by the Ontario government, opening the door for graduate programs and funded research.
In between these two milestones, Ryerson’s story is one of constant evolution and progress leading to the university becoming Canada’s leader in innovative, career-oriented education.
We’ll introduce you to 25 alumni from our first 70 years. Some you’ll know, and some you won’t, but they all showcase the rewarding things you can do with a Ryerson education. Meet our “25 from 70” Ryersonians. Come back to see more.
