Ryerson is Canada’s leader in innovative, career-focused education and a university clearly on the move. It is a distinctly urban university with a mission to serve societal need, and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community. Now one of the most applied-to universities in Ontario, the University began in 1948 as the Ryerson Institute of Technology under the visionary leadership of Howard H. Kerr. From day one, Ryerson has undergone constant evolution in the heart of Toronto, establishing its unique focus on career-ready education.
