Expanding Scholarly, Research & Creative Activity (SRC)
In 2015-16, Ryerson University’s overall external research funding reached an all-time high of $47.1 million. Our success is due to faculty and student research that is relevant and connected to today’s challenges. Ryerson recognizes SRC success not only through funding dollars but also in the impact of our interdisciplinary research, locally, nationally and internationally.
Working with more than 200 industry and community funding partners, we are recognized for our collaborative approach toward solving complex business and societal issues.
