GLOBAL DIPLOMACY


The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga heralds a new era for our campus. With this ambitious initiative, we celebrate the leadership of those who have helped build our campus over the past 45 years and prepared us for our next leap forward as a global innovation leader. In November 2011, the University of Toronto launched Boundless, a $2-billion fundraising campaign, the largest in Canadian university history. U of T Mississauga will play an integral role in this unprecedented campaign, as we strive to prepare global citizens who will meet the challenges that affect us all. U of T Mississauga is a place where talent and ideas converge to drive prosperity. We believe that solutions to worldwide challenges begin at home. As such, we promote innovation, inspire creativity and develop talent locally—for the benefit of our region, our country and our world. As always, we will ensure that we keep the needs and aspirations of our community in our sightlines as we seek visionary private funding to support our tireless pursuit of excellence.

A Remarkable Past and a Boundless Future Preparing Global Citizens Meeting Global Challenges Boundless Innovation


A Remarkable Past and a Boundless Future The University of Toronto Mississauga was established in 1967 along the quiet banks of the Credit River. The original campus was modest, with one building, 155 students and 28 faculty members. In the decades that followed, we expanded to meet the burgeoning demand for higher education in the western Toronto metropolitan region. Today, we are the University of Toronto’s second largest campus and a university in our own right, with 26 buildings, 12,500 students and 740 faculty and staff. As a vital part of the University of Toronto’s tri-campus global powerhouse of research and teaching, we are consistently ranked among the top 30 universities worldwide. We compete internationally for world-leading faculty and our research and academic collaborations span the globe. We build and nurture enviable community ties that include business, non-profit, civic and government partners. Our students hail from more than 125 countries. Our 42,000 alumni include leaders in every walk of life. We could not be better positioned to prosper from a globalizing economy: our region is among the most culturally diverse in Canada, with connections to virtually every corner of the world. Our campus mirrors this great diversity. In recent years, our region has emerged as one of the most important hubs in Canada’s knowledge economy. In Mississauga alone, there are 1,300 multinational corporations, 61 Fortune 500 companies and 50 Global 500 Canadian head offices or major divisional headquarters. Our community is also home to a growing number of high-tech businesses in the fields of financial services, advanced manufacturing, life sciences and information technology. When you combine Mississauga with the rest of Toronto’s metropolitan region, we are part of a powerful economic engine that creates one-fifth of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product.

U of T Mississauga has responded to this extraordinary growth by expanding and transforming our facilities and programs. Today, we not only provide a world-class undergraduate education, we also offer a full range of unparalleled graduate programs—highly specialized, industry-focused programs that help ensure our community has the necessary talent to fuel the region’s vitally important knowledge economy. We have come a long way from our roots, but there is still room for growth and transformation at U of T Mississauga. In the coming years, we will continue to achieve global presence through our regional impact. We will build on our proven track record for innovation, bringing together the talent and ideas that will forge new paths for economic growth. We will continue to serve our community, by educating globally minded citizens who are prepared to lead in an increasingly complex world and by pursuing the knowledge that will address the most pressing challenges. We will realize this vision in the same way we have always accomplished our goals: by connecting our faculty and students to the extraordinary breadth and depth of U of T’s global research mission; by partnering with local institutions and industry to advance the highest aspirations of our community; and by engaging our alumni and friends in the issues, programs and projects they care about the most.

“At the University of Toronto Mississauga, we believe our ability to succeed depends on our ability to innovate. We cultivate a depth of disciplinary excellence, extraordinary research production and exemplary partnerships with government, industry and the health care sector. Together, we will address society’s most pressing concerns with solutions that have both regional and global impact.”


Situated on 225 acres of protected greenbelt, the University of Toronto Mississauga is at the centre of one of the most vibrant metropolitan hubs in Canada’s knowledge economy.


Preparing Global Citizens Today’s students are inheriting a world in transition, with challenges that are complex, unprecedented and transnational. Our students will need more than specialized knowledge. They will need a broad perspective that prepares them to work across borders, boundaries and disciplines.

Over the past three decades, the world has changed in extraordinary ways. Knowledge, information and capital flow across continents and countries with greater ease. There is more convergence, communication and competition than ever before. The biggest challenges we face are shared by all of humanity. The need for knowledgeable, globally aware individuals has never been more urgent. U of T Mississauga has a long tradition of educating remarkable global citizens. From Eugenia Duodu (HBSc 2010) who works as a youth mentor and community advocate in Toronto, to astronaut Roberta Bondar (PhD 1974) who was the first Canadian woman in space, U of T Mississauga graduates are making a difference in our region, our country and our world. The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga will seek private support to foster international fluency and leadership skills in our students and infuse crosscultural understanding and global perspectives into our courses and programs. As well, our campaign will raise funds to ensure access and opportunity for all students—including those who may be the first in their families to attend university— through merit- and needs-based financial awards. We will also seek transformational funding to build learning environments that nurture collaboration, creativity and innovation—through programs and physical spaces that enrich student life and learning. We invite you to join us. Together, we will prepare students who have the advanced knowledge, leadership skills and global fluency to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

“There is much more that unites human beings than divides them.�


Building Global Fluency The diverse student population of U of T Mississauga is a defining aspect of our character. Approximately 15 per cent of our student population is international. These students enrich the educational experience and bring global perspectives to the classroom. Our domestic student population is equally diverse, reflecting the rich pluralism of our region. The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga will harness this diversity and create a collaborative learning environment in which students develop into globally competent citizens. As the world becomes more interconnected, our country will require more people who can bridge different cultures, speak a few languages and work across borders. To address this need, we are internationalizing our curriculum and expanding our offerings in the humanities and language studies to better prepare our students for the realities of the 21st-century workforce. Our campaign will seek private funding to create more opportunities for our students to engage in meaningful connections with their peers, their communities, their nation and other cultures. We will also increase international learning opportunities for our students through new travel awards, such as our recently established scholarship for undergraduate study in Italy.

The Centre for South Asian Engagement

U of T Mississauga is broadening the study of traditional subjects to include the active engagement of our vibrant local communities. A leading example is our new Centre for South Asian Engagement. More than 20 per cent of Mississauga residents are of South Asian descent and the same is true for more than a third of Brampton’s population. At U of T Mississauga, we research and explore South Asian issues through the lens of many disciplines, including politics, history, religion and literature. In addition, our students connect with South Asian culture through organizations such as the Hindu Student Council and the Pakistan Youth Alliance. The Centre for South Asian Engagement will deepen ties with our local South Asian community and help connect our students to one of the world’s most dynamic economic and cultural powers. To achieve this vision, we seek private funding to establish more student exchanges and more interdisciplinary research in South Asian studies, as well as a lecture series that will feature world-leading South Asian scholars, artists and public figures.

One of the world’s most renowned scholars in Islamic studies, Professor Shafique Virani was sought by leading universities around the world but he ultimately chose the University of Toronto Mississauga. A key architect behind the new Centre for South Asian Engagement, Virani is Chair of the Department of Historical Studies, winner of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Association Teaching Award and a U of T Distinguished Professor— among the highest honours awarded to professors.

Ensuring Access and Opportunity At U of T Mississauga, we strive to provide access to higher education for every qualified student—including those who are the first in their families to attend university. U of T has pledged that no student offered admission to a program should be unable to enter or complete it due to lack of financial means. Thanks to our generous community of supporters, U of T Mississauga has a growing number of endowed and annually funded scholarships and awards for academic excellence, community engagement and financial need. The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga will build on this momentum and help us attract the best students, regardless of their financial situation. Through further gifts to our campaign, we will establish more awards and scholarships to celebrate academic achievement and assist those in financial need.

Shaping Student Life and Learning At U of T Mississauga, we offer our students the best of both worlds: the academic strengths of the University of Toronto with the benefits of our closeknit campus community. Although we have experienced enormous growth over the past decade, we are committed to preserving and enhancing this unique and collegial learning environment for our students. Evidence shows that students who participate in extra-curricular activities learn more, achieve higher grades and are more engaged with their peers and with faculty members. Fostering these valuable student experiences—from clubs to sports to student government—is a top priority for the Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga. We will build on existing programs which promote smaller learning environments, such as rezONE, genONE and utmONE, and we will develop new programs tailored to the needs of our students. We will also seek visionary private funding to enhance key physical spaces for our campus community, such as the William G. Davis Building, the Kaneff Centre, the Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre and the Athletic Field House.

“Over the years, U of T Mississauga has succeeded in preserving the qualities that make the place unique—proximity to the professors, a strong sense of community and a wonderful green campus.”


Positioning Students for Success Entering the first year of university can be intimidating for many students. To position first-year undergraduates for success, U of T Mississauga offers three sister programs—utmONE, rezONE and genONE—that feature small-group experiences and mentoring. The newest of these programs is utmONE, launched in 2011. In utmONE, upper-year mentors guide first-year students through the basic survival skills of academic life, such as how to take notes and write tests to university standards. Students also take courses in leadership development, health and wellness and community service. Moving from undergraduate to graduate studies or into the working world is another critical transition point in a student’s life. To ready students for this change, the Preparation to Launch Program was created through the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre and made possible thanks to a further gift from Robert and Irene Gillespie. “Learning by doing helps students prepare for life after graduation,” says Robert. In addition to Preparation to Launch, the Centre also offers an intimate learning environment for all students through its workshops and seminars on topics ranging from study strategies to essay writing. Helping students build a solid foundation for productive and fulfilling careers through programs such as these is one of the important goals for the Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Meeting Global Challenges As the heart of a growing, prosperous and globally connected region, U of T Mississauga has the unique opportunity—and responsibility—to address the challenges of our time.

Integrated within the University of Toronto, U of T Mississauga is part of one of the most powerful university research networks in North America. Our location within the western Toronto metropolitan region affords us yet another distinct advantage: we are at the heart of a great network of innovation, which includes leading hospitals and hundreds of international corporations in the finance, manufacturing, life sciences and information technology sectors. The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga will strengthen our research enterprise and advance the health and prosperity of our region. We will build upon our extraordinary history of exploration and discovery and ensure curiosity-driven research continues to thrive on campus and enrich the learning experience of our undergraduate and graduate students. Our campaign will seek private funding to support pioneering research that extends our knowledge of the world, propels cross-disciplinary investigation and paves the way for practical solutions to complex problems. We will also seek support for our programs in management and innovation to help ensure the best ideas from our students and faculty have broad societal impact. Our campaign will also help drive breakthroughs in health research and education that will hopefully lead to a more sustainable and effective healthcare system.

“In a globalized world, cities will play an even greater role in advancing prosperity.�


Supporting New Knowledge and Pioneering Research The best professors push their fields in new directions and teach their students to do the same. If nurtured, such a platform of achievement becomes self-perpetuating, enabling us to attract more talented students and faculty to our programs. Research excellence determines a university’s reputation on the world stage and delivers broad benefits to the city and region in which it is based. Universities attract bright people and generate innovative ideas that are essential to cutting-edge industries and knowledge-based economies. Exceptional universities require exceptional faculty, who are committed to new ways of thinking, teaching and researching. U of T Mississauga is distinguished by a depth of scholarship and inquiry that is strengthened by our position within Canada’s pre-eminent university. The addition of new scholars will bolster our research capacity, provide leadership in new fields and increase our ability to attract top graduate students from around the world. However, global competition for outstanding faculty members is fierce. We must attract and retain the best academics and researchers if we are to nurture the pioneering discovery that deepens our understanding and leads to practical applications in the world. U of T Mississauga has numerous areas of strength such as forensic science, history, chemistry, life sciences, the management of innovation, and communication, culture and technology. We are now poised to lay the foundation for new and emerging areas of concentration. The Campaign for the University of Toronto Mississauga will seek key support across management, the sciences, social sciences and humanities to create new chairs and professorships that will attract world-leading faculty with interests in innovation, entrepreneurship, South Asian studies, human development and sustainability.

Fostering Prosperity through Invention and Innovation Canada’s competitive advantage and our ability to address large societal issues will depend on our capacity to invent, innovate and transform new ideas into practical solutions. Recent studies, however, have pointed to an “innovation gap” in Canada compared to other industrialized nations. Recognizing the important role innovation plays in the global knowledge economy, U of T Mississauga has ambitions to build a better ecosystem for training future innovators, entrepreneurs and managers. As a leading school for strategic management and business education, we already play a central role in advancing our region’s economic competitiveness. With the support of our donors, alumni and friends, we will build on this foundation and intensify our commitment to educating students who know how to drive innovation and develop products and services that deliver economic and social benefits to people’s lives. Developing such leaders will help ensure Canada has the strength to compete in the global knowledge economy. The new Institute for Management and Innovation—a cornerstone of our campaign—will be an important nexus for educating managers to lead the knowledge-based industries of the 21st century.

The Institute for Management and Innovation Today’s competitive economic climate requires strategic managers with sector-specific expertise who understand how innovative breakthroughs actually work and how to maximize their full potential. The Institute of Management and Innovation will build on our multidisciplinary tradition of studies in management, accounting, biotechnology, innovation strategy and sustainability, and apply this knowledge to innovative sectors that are driving today’s growth. Drawing on the strengths of an entire campus and enriched by the resources of all of U of T and various business and government partners, the Institute will be a school in which various management disciplines work together to produce future leaders in science-based enterprises, societal organizations and various leading professions. Private support will fund this entirely new kind of business education and research enterprise through endowed chairs and by attracting internationally recognized innovation leaders and outstanding graduate students.

The Institute will: • Generate new knowledge • Build competitive advantage for regional and national industry • Inspire experiential opportunities in which students combine classroom and laboratory learning with real-world work • Foster a culture of innovation throughout our communities and educational partners • Build on U of T Mississauga’s core professional graduate and undergraduate programs: Master of Biotechnology; Master of Management of Innovation; our new Master of Science in Sustainability and Management; Master of Management and Professional Accounting; Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Commerce


Driving Breakthroughs in Human Development and Health The Toronto metropolitan region is home to the fourth largest health sciences community and the third largest biotechnology cluster in North America. More than half of Canada’s pharmaceutical companies and biomedicalrelated industries are based in the region. The University of Toronto, with its strengths in medicine, public health, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, biomedical engineering, the life sciences, physical education and public policy, is a major integrative force within this remarkable network of health research, education and innovation. The University’s Faculty of Medicine partners with nine major research hospitals, dozens of research institutes, as well as 20 community-affiliated hospitals and clinical care sites across the region and beyond. This network of talent includes more than 7,000 faculty, along with 7,000 students at all levels, working in every major branch of health. Very few universities—or regions, for that matter—possess such a critical mass of expertise. As part of the U of T system, U of T Mississauga is poised to be a vital member of the region’s growing health sciences network. Our faculty and students are already engaged in basic and applied research—from cell, molecular and systems biology to medical anthropology—which has direct implications for human health. Professor Alison Fleming is investigating how early childhood experiences can trigger changes in the brain, hormones and ultimately gene activity— the effects of which may not manifest until decades later. Professor Patrick Gunning is developing new ways to make cancer cells more vulnerable to chemotherapy. Professor Esteban Parra is exploring genetic risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes, particularly in Hispanic populations. In November 2011, we opened the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex—a landmark building to house the new Mississauga Academy of Medicine, our world-class biomedical communications program as well as state-of-the-art laboratories for our health and life sciences researchers. With this infrastructure in place, U of T Mississauga will have a powerful impact on the health of our region for decades to come.

The new Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex


The Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex

The shortage of physicians and other health professionals is one of the most significant challenges facing our health care system today. According to the Ontario College of Family Physicians, up to 879,000 Ontarians, of which more than a third are 50 years of age or older, are without a family physician. Clearly, this situation must be addressed. The recently launched Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex and the Mississauga Academy of Medicine are designed to help address Ontario’s critical shortage of doctors. The project is a result of a partnership between U of T Mississauga, U of T’s Faculty of Medicine and local hospitals. By 2014, the Academy will have 216 students enrolled in its four-year program. Medical students study alongside scientists and benefit from clinical training at the Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre. The Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex was made possible by two transformative gifts. Businessman Carlo Fidani contributed $10 million to help build the complex, to create scholarships for medical students and to endow a new chair in family and community medicine. He then challenged other visionary donors to match his giving. Terrence Donnelly, a retired lawyer and philanthropist, not only contributed a matching $10 million, he invested another $2 million to reward talented medical students and support those in financial need. In the coming years, U of T Mississauga will build on this foundation of public/private partnership to ensure the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex and the Mississauga Academy of Medicine are at the vanguard of medical research, education and clinical training.

A New model for Scientific Investigation U of T Mississauga has enormous strengths in the life sciences. In particular, the Department of Biology is a world-class academic unit with a long tradition of cross-disciplinary collaboration, both nationally and internationally. This strength is complemented by our faculty in the physical sciences whose research intersects with the life sciences. Many of the world’s greatest challenges are inherently biological—from managing climate change to ensuring a reliable food supply to stemming the tide of new infectious diseases. And it is no longer enough for researchers to specialize only in one area. A new paradigm is needed for scientific investigation and training, which integrates diverse disciplines across multiple fields of study. To forge a leadership role, U of T Mississauga will create interdisciplinary collaborations that join biology with complementary disciplines such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, geography and psychology. Ongoing collaborations will benefit from the major industry sectors in the western Toronto metropolitan region, including the biotechnology, biomedical and pharmaceutical industries. Professor Patrick Gunning is a leading example of this interdisciplinary approach. A medicinal chemist in the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences, he uses his skills and insights in synthetic organic chemistry to guide a research group that creates molecules intended to block processes associated with the propagation of breast, pancreatic and brain cancer. His research group creates opportunities not only for students in biology and medicine, but also for those studying biophysics and computer science. Students also benefit from Professor Gunning’s collaborations within the international research community. And the students experience the advantages of working as a collective that integrates knowledge and methods across disciplines. This cross-disciplinary approach helps individuals develop the skills to tackle complex problems, work collaboratively and think fluidly across boundaries.
