Tri-Campus Review: “One University, Three Campuses”
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.”
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
The five pillars are:
- Academic Planning and Academic Change, which will discuss questions related to new/changed programs and units, reviews, and academic planning;
- Graduate Units, which will discuss questions related to graduate faculty membership, searches, graduate chairs and graduate units;
- Student Services, which will discuss questions related to University-wide and campus-specific responsibilities for student services, and international student experience;
- Administrative Structure, which will discuss questions relating to campus leadership, administrative responsibilities, and reporting lines;
- Budget Relationships, which will proceed as part of the Budget Model Review and discuss questions related to budget, costs, and planning.
