University of Toronto President David Naylor, whose term ends on October 31, thanked the UTSC community for “all the wonderful memories” and said the campus is in excellent hands moving forward.

Naylor was greeted by UTSC faculty, staff and students during a special ceremony to mark his eight years of service as president.

“It’s wonderful to see UTSC growing within the tri-campus system with an array of dynamic programs and a growing list of graduate programs,” he said. “I look forward to seeing the next chapter as this campus continues to flourish.”

Naylor reflected fondly on his time as president and in working with UTSC leadership, faculty and staff on many projects and to help the campus grow. He praised the “incredibly diverse and dynamic” students and their commitment to academic excellence.

Since 2005 UTSC has added several new buildings and academic programs. Principal Franco Vaccarino credits Naylor’s vision and leadership as instrumental in helping guide UTSC during an important time.

“David is a strong promoter of UTSC and a big believer in the tri-campus system,” said Vaccarino. “He set goals that are already being realized and has truly helped transform UTSC into an intellectual and cultural hub of the Eastern GTA.”

University of Toronto Chancellor Michael Wilson was also in attendance and thanked Naylor for his dedication and service to U of T.
