Ryerson University is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. The University’s academic plan, Our Time to Lead, can be found at the following:

Located in the heart of one of the world’s most culturally and linguistically diverse urban centres,
Ryerson’s high quality programs and scholarly, research and creative activities extend beyond the walls of the university.

Ryerson is deeply connected to the city and the world beyond, attracting talent, opportunities and global connections to the Greater Toronto Area. Programs and curriculum are not static; they are relevant to changing careers, professions and scholarly disciplines. Students, faculty and staff challenge the status quo with new solutions and new ways of thinking. Longstanding partnerships with community, industry, government, and professional practice drive research and innovation that responds to real-world problems.

Ryerson recognizes that creativity and innovation should not be contained. Its diverse learning community collaborates across disciplines and with external partners, taking smart, calculated risks to turn promising ideas into tangible solutions, products, processes or services that make a positive and meaningful impact upon society. Students are trusted to learn. In their programs and through experiential learning opportunities students solve complex problems, think critically and communicate clearly, gaining the confidence and knowledge to build careers, enter diverse professions or to launch their own ventures and create jobs.

The evolution of Ryerson has positioned the university to be ready and able to take on a role in keeping with its success as a connector, builder and innovator. This is Ryerson’s time to lead.
