Woodsworth College Residence, opening 2004  

 

Woodsworth College
Woodsworth College's submission is a representation of our past, present and future. It features a photograph of James Shaver Woodsworth, the man for whom our college was named in 1974 on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

J.S. Woodsworth was an advocate for social justice, a Member of Parliament and a founder of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), the forerunner of the New Democratic Party. He was also a Methodist minister and wrote the beautiful grace which includes the famous words that capture the spirit of our Woodsworth College community: "What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all."

The photograph next to Woodsworth is of Alexander MacArthur House, the original home of the college. Built in 1891, it is one of the few remaining Victorian homes on St. George Street. The submission also includes photos of the new wing, which received a Governor General's Award for Architecture when it opened in 1992, and an artist's rendering of our new residence (also at left), scheduled for completion in 2004.

Finally, and most importantly, the submission includes photos of some of our students, including Carol Camper and Mahdie Aliroteh Seyed receiving their Peter F. Bronfman Gold Scholarships; Selma Plaut on her graduation day, aged 101; Woodsworth alumna Jean Augustine, the first female African-Canadian Member of Parliament, and many others.
