Office of the Vice-President and Principal

Message from the Vice-President and Principal, Professor Deep Saini:

Vice-President and Principal Deep SainiA warm welcome to the University of Toronto Mississauga – or UTM, as so many call it – the second largest of the University of Toronto’s three campuses.

UTM is increasingly the campus of choice for those looking for a combination of the world-class educational experience that U of Toronto is renowned for and the serenity of a stunningly beautiful park-like campus. Born just 46 years ago as then an undergraduate college, UTM’s 225-acre campus on the banks of the Credit River has grown into a mid-size Canadian university in its own right, offering bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in a broad array of disciplines. This is a place where world-renowned faculty deliver an exceptional educational experience steeped in the rich scholarly tradition of one of the world’s leading research universities.

This modern campus dotted with many award-winning architectural gems, is home to over 13,000 students pursuing studies in a rich spectrum of arts and sciences, forensics, information and communication technologies, medicine, business and commerce, and a uniquely UTM brand of sector-specific management education in the newly established Institute for Management and Innovation. With nearly 20 per cent international students representing over 120 countries and a local student population that is equally diverse, UTM offers a rich cultural environment that has few parallels anywhere.

“Phenomenal growth” is an oft-used descriptor for UTM. Yet, we have proudly maintained our reputation as an institution where individuals count and the sense of community is a religion. Speaking of the community, an ethos of societal impact, mutual care, and global excellence through local relevance drives UTM’s exceptionally strong reciprocal ties with our City and the Region. Nested within Canada’s sixth largest city, Mississauga, and the largest metropolitan region, the Greater Toronto, UTM boasts an annual economic impact of $1.31 billion.
