The University of Toronto is a vibrant and diverse academic community. It includes 80,000 students, 12,000 faculty, 200 librarians, and 6,000 staff members across three distinctive campuses and at many partner sites, including world-renowned hospitals. The university is one of the most respected and influential institutions of higher education and advanced research in the world. Its strengths extend across the full range of disciplines: The 2012-13 Times Higher Education ranking groups the University of Toronto with Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Columbia, Cambridge, Oxford, the University of Melbourne, and the University of Michigan as the only institutions in the top 27 in all six broad disciplinary areas. The university is also consistently rated one of Canada’s Top 100 employers, and ranks with Harvard and Yale for the top university library resources in North America
Adopted in 1992 and continuously upheld since then, the university’s “Statement of Institutional Purpose” includes a succinct mission statement: “The University of Toronto is committed to being an internationally significant research university, with undergraduate, graduate and professional programs of excellent quality.” Twenty years on, Toronto remains a research pacesetter not only for Canada, but for the world: only Harvard publishes more. It is also a continental leader in knowledge-translation and entrepreneurship: Toronto students and faculty generated 25 spin-out companies in 2011 alone. And while it has long been a critical contributor for Ontario and Canada in graduate and professional education, degree holders from U of T undergraduate programs are in leadership roles across Ontario and around the world.
Every year, the U of T welcomes students of the highest caliber – not just from Ontario, but also in rising numbers from across Canada and around the world. The university invests tens of millions each year in student bursaries and scholarships with one aim in view: to ensure that students can be admitted on merit, not on the basis of personal or parental income.
Today’s students, of course, are tomorrow’s alumni. While the University of Toronto is proud of its historical and massive ongoing contributions to research and innovation in Canada, it is ultimately the graduates who constitute the university’s single biggest contribution to the strengthening of communities and the creation of successful and innovative societies. The U of T claims 500,000 alumni in 175 countries: they are in leadership roles on every continent and in every sphere of human activity with surprising concentrations of influence everywhere from Hollywood to Hong Kong.
