Welcome to the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic

Ryerson University has established a strong foundation and reputation for student engagement, SRC excellence and innovation, and as we approach the end of this academic year, there is so much to be proud of and look forward to.

Truth & Reconciliation
In January, the university recognized the work of Ryerson’s Truth & Reconciliation Strategic Working Group and looked back on our journey of reconciliation. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, our progress is encouraging for the future of Indigenization at Ryerson.

Faculty Renewal & Retention
In collaboration with the Office of the Vice-Provost, Faculty Affairs, Ryerson has made faculty hiring a priority and together we’ve initiated the development of a robust faculty renewal and retention plan. Amidst a challenging fiscal environment, the protection of our teaching community remains steadfast and strong.

Budget & Academic Plan
With thanks to our community, Ryerson has held a series of successful consultations and town halls pertaining to the 2019-20 Budget, and the PDF file2020-2025 Academic Plan review and enhancement. Ryerson continues to build momentum in initiatives and programs that will support ongoing development. For instance, we unveiled our newest building and collaborative space, the Centre for Urban Innovation, and this fall, we will be accepting applications for Ryerson’s first cohort in the Faculty of Law.

I invite you to connect should you wish to share any ideas that will help our institutional agenda unfold.

Academic Plan 2020-2025

Ryerson’s academic plan has guided our vision over the past five years to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. We are evolving the plan to meet our needs and aspirations for 2020-25.

Strategic Mandate Agreement (SMA)

SMAs are established through negotiations with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to communicate priorities, identify areas of institutional strength/focus, and set performance metrics. Ryerson will be seeking community input and reporting to the Ministry in Fall 2019.
