Our Tradition of Excellence
At U of T, we believe in celebrating excellence
For nearly two centuries we’ve been a place where the world’s brightest minds come together to explore, discover, question and challenge.
Our remarkable community of students, faculty, staff and alumni has transformed ideas into impact and made sense of the world around us – through art, literature, social science, basic science, medicine, law, engineering, athletics and community engagement.
The U of T Celebrates site recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of these members of our community who strive for excellence in all they do.
It celebrates the faculty whose award-winning research and teaching make U of T one of the top-ranked universities in the world – and the students, alumni and staff whose talent, creativity and commitment are recognized across the country and around the globe.
Our Award-winning Community
Faculty, students, staff & alumni
At U of T, we consistently punch above our weight in national and international competitions.
Our community of faculty, students, staff and alumni includes Nobel laureates and Rhodes Scholars, A.M.Turing Award winners and Man Booker Prize winners, recipients of the Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal for Science and Engineering and the Holberg International Memorial Prize. It includes winners of the Killam Prize, Molson Prize, Gold Leaf Prize, Steacie Prize, Balzan Prize, and Wolf Prize, the Academy Award, the Juno Award – and hundreds of Royal Society Fellows and recipients of the Order of Canada.
We congratulate all of our awards and honours recipients – past, present and future.
