50 Years!


Message from Principal chin

Welcome to Woodsworth’s 50th anniversary year! The College was founded on January 1, 1974, when part-time students demanded to belong to a College that provided all the same services that full-time students enjoyed. Even after we began including direct-entry students, Woodsworth College has stayed true to its mission of providing access to those who might not otherwise attend postsecondary education.

We are grateful to the Woodsworth faculty and staff and to all our donors and supporters who make it possible to offer the best educational experience for a diverse student body, and we look forward to the next 50 years! Stay tuned for details of the 50th anniversary celebrations, and we hope to see you on campus soon.

Please visit this page often to stay up to date on upcoming events and ways to get involved.
