Ryerson University

Ryerson University is Canada’s leader in innovative, career-oriented education and a university clearly on the move. With a mission to serve societal need, and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community, Ryerson offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate programs. Distinctly urban, culturally diverse and inclusive, the university is home to more than 44,500 students, including 2,400 master’s and PhD students, 3,200 faculty and staff, and nearly 170,000 alumni worldwide. Research at Ryerson is on a trajectory of success and growth: externally funded research has doubled in the past five years. The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education is Canada’s leading provider of university-based adult education.

The Centre for Communicating Knowledge (CCK) from the Faculty of Communication and Design (FCAD), will play a key role in The Conversation and work with all Ryerson faculties to develop new ways to communicate research, assist in the development of multiple media platforms and create innovative outputs.

The CCK’s aim is to find new ways to explore knowledge mobilization. Engaging FCAD students, the CCK will conceptualize and develop various communication assets such as infographics, videos, and animations to enhance our faculty members’ stories.
