The University of Toronto Scarborough launched the largest fundraising campaign in its history on November 14, 2012, at Miller Lash House on Old Kingston Road. The $35-million Boundless Vision campaign—an integral part of the U of T’s $2-billion Boundless campaign—kicks off at a pivotal moment in the history of UTSC.

Speaking at the launch event, Principal Franco Vaccarino said the campaign will build on UTSC’s recent capital expansion, enabling the campus to reach new levels of achievement. “We have been focused on building strong academic and research platforms, along with the facilities needed to support them,” Vaccarino noted. “Now, we are building on and enhancing UTSC’s place on the global scene.”

The campaign, which has already reached 40 percent of its goal with $13.8 million raised, will target the areas that are most critical to UTSC at this important juncture in its growth and development.

“Boundless is an opportunity for UTSC to take another significant leap forward and expand its impact at an unprecedented rate and in a short period of time,” explained David Palmer, U of T’s vice president, advancement. “This campus is moving forward with passion and purpose.”
