Budget 2021-22

The annual university budget is the financial plan for how the university will receive and spend funds in a fiscal year (May 1 to April 30).

Our open and consultative budget process gives students, faculty and staff the opportunity to engage with senior administration on our 2021-22 budget plans in a public forum.

Academic Plan 2020-25

The development of Ryerson’s Academic Plan for 2020-25 was led by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic with support from the University Planning Office. The plan reflects extensive consultation with members of the university community and is intended to serve as a guide for our activities over the next five years.
