Ryerson Campus Life

Mission and Vision

The Faculty of Arts connects academic excellence with relevant results, encouraging active and critical minds. We stimulate awareness for better understanding through examination of the past and present, both locally and globally. Through collaboration and inclusion – of diverse ideas, people, and cultures – we inform innovative policy and drive positive change for community and individual empowerment.

The Faculty of Arts empowers students, graduates and faculty members to become local and global citizens, leaders who are catalysts for positive change in society and our communities.
