Message from Vice-Provost and Dean, Jennifer Mactavish

Creative, connected and entrepreneurial; graduate education at Ryerson puts you at the core of what’s next. Ryerson’s graduate programs are distinctive and offer an outstanding student-centred experience where innovative and creative perspectives in relation to real-world questions are valued. 

Toronto is in the 'Dish With One Spoon Territory’. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. Read the full Ryerson Land Acknowledgement.
