About this Event

The Office of Social Innovation invites you to join us for our official launch and announcement of the renewal of social innovation at Ryerson University.

With the broad ambition of becoming the comprehensive innovation university, social innovation is being taken up across many facets of the Ryerson campus and community. In 2016, the Office of Social Innovation (OSI) was established to bring together these efforts and initiatives across the university, all of which work towards challenging the status quo to create a future that is equitable and inclusive. After three years, OSI has completed a new strategic plan and vision for social innovation at Ryerson University, which recognizes the true roots of innovative social change: transformative community-driven activism and advocacy.

Today, OSI strives to create transformative solutions to complex social issues through teaching, learning, and research. Faculty, staff, students, and community members are all welcomed to attend this event, as we enthusiastically launch the strategic direction for OSI at Ryerson. We will spotlight presentations from students who have found the practice of social innovation critical to their advocacy, activism, and education.

We hope to see you there!
