Tri-Campus Review: “One University, Three Campuses”

Overview

The University of Toronto has a unique tri-campus structure, bound together by a shared identity and a set of genuinely tri- or bi- campus graduate programs and departments. It is the product of a 40-year evolution, with the Mississauga and Scarborough campuses transforming themselves from small undergraduate colleges, to mid-size educational entities hosting a wide range of graduate and undergraduate offerings, and strong programs of research.

Towards 2030 stated the University’s long-term intent to create a regional ‘University of Toronto system’, characterized by three campuses with increasingly strong individual campus identities. In light of this, we are pleased to announce that the University is launching a review of the relationships among its three campuses, under the theme identified in Towards 2030, “One University, Three Campuses.”

While proceeding along similar timelines and with some overlap in subject matter, please note that the Tri-Campus Review and the Budget Model Review are separate processes that will work independently of each other.


Steering Committee, Pillars, and Working Groups

The tri-campus review will be built on five pillars, each with its own working group, and guided by a steering committee. The steering committee will include the following members:

  • Cheryl Regehr, Vice-President and Provost (Chair)
  • Joshua Barker, Vice-Provost, Graduate Research & Education and Dean, School of Graduate Studies
  • David Cameron, Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science
  • Scott Mabury, Vice-President, University Operations and Vice-Provost, Academic Operations
  • Sioban Nelson, Vice-Provost, Academic Programs, and Vice-Provost, Faculty and Academic Life
  • Bruce Kidd, Principal, University of Toronto Scarborough
  • Ulrich Krull, Principal, University of Toronto Mississauga
  • Sandy Welsh, Vice-Provost, Students

Each working group will have tri-campus representation, will develop principles to guide future decision-making and will propose changes to policy and procedure as appropriate.

The five pillars are:

  1. Academic Planning and Academic Change
  2. Graduate Units
  3. Student Services
  4. Administrative Structure
  5. Budget Relationships

The review will take place throughout 2018 and into 2019. Further information will be released on this page as it becomes available.
