We develop tomorrow's leaders

We help students make an intentional decision to become a leader


The Ted Rogers Leadership Centre's areas of focus:

Leadership Events and Communication
Scholarship and Research

An annual Top 200 Summit for upper-year undergraduate students


The Ted Rogers Leadership Centre offers a setting for scholars, students and business leaders to research, identify, publish and otherwise communicate best approaches to ethical business decision-making and leadership.

The student-oriented mission of The Ted Rogers Leadership Centre (TRLC) is to help a substantial number of students develop the core competencies that ethical leaders need to excel in the businesses of today and tomorrow. The goal is to provide students with opportunities that allow them to intentionally decide to become leaders and to understand how they need to change and grow to become successful, ethical leaders.

Ryerson University is exceedingly grateful to the Rogers Family Foundation for its $2 million gift to support the Ted Rogers Leadership Centre (TRLC) at the Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM). The TRLC mission is to develop Canada’s next generation of ethical business leaders.

The Rogers family’s generous gift has enabled the TRLC to:

  • Expand its programs, combining academic and practical approaches to leadership, allowing more students to develop the core competencies leaders need to excel
  • Build its Ethical Leadership Case Program to serve as a global resource for professors and students
  • Launch the annual undergraduate National Ethical Leadership Case Competition
  • Create new universally accessible e-learning programs including critical thinking and ethical leadership
