In the fall of 1964, the cornerstone of what would become the permanent home of University of Toronto’s New College was laid at the corner of Willcocks and Huron Streets, in the heart of the St. George Campus.
New College was the first undergraduate college to bring students from the professional faculties—including engineering and pharmacy, architecture and music—together with those in the arts, sciences and commerce, beginning a conversation between students and faculty of different backgrounds that continues today.
New College turned 50 in 2012. This momentous milestone called for us to look back at our past accomplishments and reflect upon where we want to be 50 years from now, on the occasion of our centenary.
Your support is critical in helping to achieve our vision for the future. We seek an initial $7 million in both capital and endowment funding, which represents the cornerstone of the largest fundraising effort in the history of New College. We are confident that our alumni and friends will support this great initiative that honours our past visionaries by preparing today’s students to become the next generation of global citizens and leaders.
