  2. About University of Toronto

    University of Toronto

    The University of Toronto (U of T) is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The university's main campus, St. George, is located in Downtown Toronto surrounding Queen's Park and the Ontario Legislature. Its two other campuses, the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) and the University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM, also informally referred to as "Erindale Campus"), are located in the eastern and western ends, respectively, of the Greater Toronto Area.   The institution was founded as King's College by John Strachan, and was granted its Royal Charter in 1827. Its name was changed to the University of Toronto in 1849, after it ended ties with the Church of England to become a secular institution. University College was created as a constituent college in 1853, and over time, the formerly independent Trinity College, Victoria University and St. Michael's College became federated with the university.  A 2006 university ranking by Newsweek International ranks the University of Toronto 1st in Canada, 18th worldwide, and 5th outside of the United States. Similar academic rankings consistently place the university among the world's best. Research at the University of Toronto has been responsible for the world's first electronic heart pacemaker, artificial larynx, single-lung transplant, nerve transplant, artificial pancreas, chemical laser, G-suit, the first practical electron microscope, the first cloning of T-cells, and the extraction of insulin."
