The University of St. Michael’s College is one of the oldest and most distinctive post-secondary institutions in Ontario and one of three universities federated with the University of Toronto. Founded in 1852 by the Congregation of St. Basil from Annonay, France, St. Michael’s offers undergraduate students’ full access to the complete range of courses offered by the University of Toronto, as well as its own unique academic programs. St. Michael’s is home to over 5000 undergraduate and 250 graduate students, who live and learn in the heart of Canada’s greatest research university. St. Michael’s offers a close-knit and inviting community that maintains its Catholic identify while welcoming people of all backgrounds.
St. Michael’s is supported by a loyal and generous community of over 38,000 alumni and friends. Their commitment to our past, present and future is creating exciting opportunities to expand and strengthen alumni involvement, advocacy and financial support. As we look forward to our 180th anniversary in 2032, we are operating with a strategic plan titled
St. Mike’s 180: Rooted in the future. The plan, which imbues all aspects of university life, is built on three pillars: academics, community and sustainability, all stemming from the University’s commitment to the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.
As part of Defy Gravity: The Campaign for the University of Toronto, we seek to harness the talent, generosity, and compassion of our global community to strengthen the
University’s commitment to inclusive excellence and accelerate work on the most complex issues facing our world today.
