About Us

Ryerson International connects the University community to an increasingly globalized world through projects, partnershipsexchangesresearch, and visiting scholars. We work to enhance the University’s reputation abroad and provide a range of overseas opportunities for students and faculty.

We are a sought-out partner in multi-university international proposals, and a regular participant in government and industry trade missions. Many of Ryerson’s international partnerships are in countries that have increased their investment in higher education, research, and development. We continue important work in low-income countries, building local capacity.
