UTS shares more than its namesake with University of Toronto (U of T). Although UTS alumni pursue post-secondary and graduate education at renowned institutions around the world, there is no denying that the path from UTS to its affiliated university is a well-worn one.
“UTS’ illustrious history and our present and future are closely connected with the University of Toronto,” says UTS principal Rosemary Evans. “We strive to contribute to the University’s mission through our various partnerships with U of T professors and departments, and by engaging in co-designed research and joint efforts to support innovation in teaching and learning. The Building the Future campaign will provide a solid foundation for the development and expansion of our partnerships.”
Thanks to the renewed Affiliation Agreement between UTS and U of T, gifts to Building the Future can be made through U of T here. Donors to UTS through the U of T Boundless campaign are recognized as donors to both campaigns. Several of the ‘Founders’ of Building the Future are heavily involved with both institutions, and both our campaigns. Their leadership, along with the over 3,000 other donors who have already shown their commitment to Building the Future, are why we are already 78% of the way to our $60M goal.
“The campaign’s early momentum is in part a testament to the strong ties between UTS and U of T. As part of the 2015 affiliation agreement, campaign donors can support Building the Future through Boundless: the Campaign for the University of Toronto, an attractive option for those with connections to both the high school and university.”
