Page Title 175 Anniversary
 

U of T’s 175th anniversary (March 2002 to March 2003) was a historic year of celebration, an opportunity to honour our past, salute the present and promote our vision for the future. The anniversary elevated U of T’s profile across Canada and internationally. With great pride, we looked back on the university’s contributions to teaching and research, and the unparalleled achievements of its Great Minds.

To honour this milestone, the colleges and faculties of U of T were asked to submit an archival item to capture their unique identity and historical achievements. The results - a rich collection of archival photographs, architectural plans and other fascinating odds and ends - were photographed and transformed into a Virtual Time Capsule.

The anniversary year came to a close with a black tie gala at the Royal Ontario Museum. One of the highlights of the evening was the 175th Anniversary Gala Video, produced especially for the occasion. The video features some of our most notable alumni and friends sending their best wishes to U of T, along with footage of the university’s past and present.
