How does a university prepare to host 10,000 visitors? By building a team, planning down to the smallest details and getting support from across campus, including the president’s office.

With the approach of Congress 2017, Ryerson is getting ready for the largest event it has ever hosted, the culmination of years of preparation. My executive team meets regularly with the organizers, and we are keenly interested in making this Congress an outstanding experience for all attendees. Aside from the number of visitors and events, it is an important moment for our university with so many scholars from across the country visiting our campus for the first time.

The excitement is building on campus. We are anticipating a wonderful and inspiring few days, and an amazing opportunity to show you our university and our city. In fact, our vibrant and diverse Toronto is at the forefront of everything we do, and I can tell you we are all in as a partner in building a great city.

As you plan your trip to Congress 2017, know that we are working hard to make it a memorable event for you and your colleagues. We look forward to seeing you!
