Well, it’s official. After much deliberation and a unanimous vote among the school’s board of governors, Ryerson University will officially be renamed Toronto Metropolitan University.

The university hasn’t wasted any time transitioning to its new name on social media, which now appears on Twitter as Toronto Metropolitan University.

The school’s president, Dr. Mohamed Lachemi, released a statement about the new name choice and its significance.

“I cannot think of a better name for our university,” he wrote.

“Our new name […] embodies so many things about our university, our community, our students, faculty, staff and alumni.”

“Located in the heart of our country’s biggest and most diverse city – we represent all that it is to be metropolitan.”

“We are a gathering place for people from all over the world, from all walks of life, with broad and diverse perspectives, lived experiences and aspirations.”

The university has created a page on its website, along with a video detailing the new chapter of its evolution.

There’s also an info page that answers questions related to the renaming process, as well as what to do with your Ryerson University branded merch, diplomas, parchments, and your education history on your LinkedIn profile.

It’s never too late to reinvent yourself, not even if you’re a 74-year-old post-secondary school.
