RYERSON TO BE RENAMED TORONTO METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
Apr 26, 2022

Hello Toronto Metropolitan University.
The school announced the name change after its board of governors approved the new name recommended by president Mohamed Lachemi.
”I cannot think of a better name than Toronto Metropolitan University. Metropolitan is a reflection of who we have always been — an urban institution dedicated to excellence, innovation and inclusion and who we aim to be — a place where all feel welcome, seen, represented and celebrated.”
The downtown school had faced mounting calls to make the change because it honoured Egerton Ryerson, who helped design both the public and residential school systems in Canada.
