As 2022 draws to a close, there’s “a sense of energy and enthusiasm” across the University of Toronto’s three campuses, President Meric Gertler says.
In his annual holiday message, the president looks back on a year that saw the return of in-person graduation celebrations at Convocation Hall and the biggest back-to-school season in U of T’s history – and reflects on how it feels to be together once again.
“The past year has also brought its share of challenges for all of us,” President Gertler says. “But thanks to you, the University of Toronto is a tremendous source of hope.”
He congratulates members of the U of T community on their accomplishments and thanks them for their contributions – from tackling the climate crisis and “addressing urgent needs in the city around us,” to offering refuge to scholars fleeing war and oppression.
“I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season, and all the best in the year to come.”
