The Empire Club is pleased to present our University Presidents’ Panel featuring: Dr. Meric Gertler, President of The University of Toronto; Dr. Rhonda Lenton, President and Vice Chancellor, York University and Dr. Daniel Woolf, Principal and Vice Chancellor, Queen’s University in conversation with Sheldon Levy, CEO NEXT Canada.
Canada was recently named by the OECD as the world’s most educated country with an astonishing 50% of its population completing post-secondary education. This story is in large part due to the quality of its public schools and universities which increasingly attract students from all around the world.
How did our universities get to this level, and what differentiates them from those operating in other countries? Is there a strategic plan for continuing this success story? How can Canadian businesses profit from this fortuitous situation and what impact does this success story have on their own recruitment plans for the future?
The Empire Club has brought together the Presidents of what are arguably three of the world’s best universities: the University of Toronto, Queen’s and York, to discuss how they got to where they are and where they plan to go next. This special session, moderated by a highly-respected educator and the former President of Ryerson, is a must for anyone who is impacted by the quality of education in this country and who wants to take full advantage of this competitive edge that Canada now enjoys.
