The University was chartered in 1827 as King's College, the first institution of higher learning in the colony of Upper Canada. At first controlled by members of the Church of England and the colonial establishment, the university acquired its present name in 1850 upon becoming a secular institution. Since the creation of University College in 1853 as the first of its constituent colleges, the university had also incorporated the ecclesiastical schools of Trinity College, Victoria University and St. Michael's College among others into its organization.

History

The founding of a colonial college had long been the desire of John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada. An Oxford-educated military commander who fought in the American Revolutionary War, Simcoe felt that a college would be needed to counter the spread of republicanism from the United States. In 1796, he told the Anglican Bishop of Quebec in writing, "I have no idea that a University will be established, though I am daily confirmed in its necessity." The Upper Canada Executive Committee recommended in 1798 that a university be established in the town of York. On March 15, 1827, King's College was established by a Royal Charter from King George IV, largely due to the efforts of John Strachan, the influential Anglican Bishop of Toronto who became the college's first president. The original Greek Revival building was constructed on the present site of the Ontario Parliament Buildings. Under Strachan's guidance, King's College was a strongly Anglican institution closely aligned with the Church of England and the British colonial elite known as the Family Compact. John Graves Simcoe (February 25, 1752 – October 26, 1806) was the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada (modern-day southern Ontario plus the watersheds of Georgian Bay and Lake Superior) from 1791-1796. ...

After a lengthy and heated public debate, the newly-elected responsible government of Upper Canada passed a law in 1849 to secularize King's College. On January 1, 1850, King's College was renamed as the University of Toronto, officially severing its connection with the Anglican Church. A reorganization in 1853 created University College as its nondenominational teaching branch. Enraged by the decision to secularize, Strachan left the presidency to open Trinity College, a private Anglican college. Meanwhile, the university moved into a new home, the Gothic Revival University College building on the present campus. Part of the old King's College property was leased to the province, forming Queen's Park. During the American Civil War, British North America became threatened by the Union blockade and the possibility of British intervention, prompting the creation of the University Rifle Corps. In 1866, the corps fought a battle to resist the Fenian raids on the Niagara border.

The School of Practical Science, precursor to the modern Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, was established in 1878 to offer instruction in engineering, mining, mechanics and manufacturing. The first engineering building was known as the "Little Red Skulehouse", and thereafter the faculty came to be nicknamed Skule. The University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, first opened in 1843, resumed teaching in 1887. The medical teaching branch had been closed for 34 years after the reorganization of 1853, although the university continued to set examinations and award medical degrees during that period. The University of Toronto Faculty of Law also opened in 1887. The Faculty of Dentistry was founded as the Royal College of Dental Surgeons in 1875 and affiliated with the university in 1888.

Main building of Victoria College, 1900

Towards the end of the 19th century, several ecclesiastical colleges began considering various forms of union with the University of Toronto to ensure their long-term viability. Knox College, a Presbyterian institution, and Wycliffe College, a low church seminary, encouraged their students to study for non-divinity degrees at University College and in 1885 entered a formal affiliation with the university. In 1890, they further elected to become federated schools of the University of Toronto, thereby giving up the right to confer all save theology and divinity degrees. The idea of federation met strong opposition at Victoria University, a Methodist school in the town of Cobourg. Having rejected the first proposal, a financial incentive finally convinced Victoria's senate and board of regents to accept federation in 1890. Decades after the death of John Strachan, the University of Trinity College was brought under the federation of the University of Toronto in 1904. It was followed in 1910 by the University of St. Michael's College, a Roman Catholic college first founded by the Basilian Fathers. Among the institutions that had seriously considered federation but ultimately remained independent were McMaster University, a Baptist school that moved to Hamilton, and Queen's College, a Presbyterian school in Kingston that later became Queen's University.

A devastating fire in 1890 severely damaged the interior of University College and devoured thirty-three thousand volumes from the library. The board of trustees commissioned a swift restoration of the building, and within two years the library was replenished with forty thousand new volumes. In 1896, the Royal Conservatory of Music became an affiliated institution of the university. Founded in 1901, the University of Toronto Press was at first responsible for printing university documents and examination papers, and began publishing books in 1912. The University of Toronto Schools, an independent secondary school, was established in 1910 by the Faculty of Education to conduct its training. The Royal Ontario Museum, the country's largest and preeminent museum, was administered by the university from its creation in 1912 until 1968, when it retained the close ties as an independent body.

The David Dunlap Observatory in Richmond Hill opened in midst of the Great Depression, and expansion continued to be slow during the Second World War. A new centre for advanced research, the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, was established in 1949. The following year, the university opened the Institute of Business Administration, now the Rotman School of Management. New College, established in 1962, departed from the prevalent practice at the older colleges by drawing a sizable portion of its students from multiple faculties. In 1963, Massey College was founded as an exclusive residence for graduate students. Originally conceived as an extension to New College, Innis College was created as a separate constituent college in 1964. The university opened branch campuses in Scarborough in 1964 and in Mississauga in 1967. First organized in 1959 as a subsidiary, York University became fully independent in 1965. Woodsworth College opened in 1974 to serve students of part-time studies. Beginning in the 1980s, reductions in government funding prompted the university to intensify its fundraising efforts.

The architecture is defined by a combination of Romanesque and Gothic Revival buildings spread across the eastern and central sections, most of them dated between 1858 and 1929. The traditional heart of the university lies in the grounds of King's College Circle, enclosing an oval lawn known as Front Campus. The centrepiece is the main building of University College, a National Historic Site, designed by Frederick William Cumberland in an eclectic blend of Romanesque and Norman architectural styles. Convocation Hall, built in 1907 with a gift from the alumni association, is recognizable for its domed roof and Ionic pillared rotunda. Although its foremost function is to host the annual graduation ceremonies, the building serves as a venue for academic and social events throughout the year.

The northeastern part of Front Campus leads into a green space anchored by Hart House, a multi-purpose student centre. Hart House is named for Hart Massey, whose Massey Foundation financed the construction of the Late Gothic complex between 1911 and 1919. Among its assorted common rooms, the Great Hall is the most architecturally renowned, featuring high timbered ceilings and stained glass windows. West of Hart House, Soldiers' Tower stands 143 feet (44 m) tall and is the most prominent structure in the vicinity. The stone arches at the tower's base are inscribed with the names of university members killed in the battlefields of the world wars. The tower features a 51-bell carillon that is played on special occasions such as Remembrance Day and convocation.

The oldest surviving building on campus is the Louis Beaufort Stewart Observatory building, now home to the students' union. Built in 1855, the magnetic observatory operated until the turn of the 20th century, when air pollution and urban electrification rendered it obsolete.

Governance

Board of Governors assembly, c. 1900. The board was replaced in 1971 by the Governing Council.

The University of Toronto has traditionally been a decentralized institution, with governing authority shared among the central administration, academic faculties, colleges and campuses. The campuses operate autonomously within a federal body that confers degrees. At the main campus, colleges retain much self-governance under a collegiate university model. The Royal Charter of 1827 provided the original basis for the university's administration; it was amended in 1849 for the secularization of King's College. The charter was largely superseded in 1853 by the University of Toronto Act, which was since amended in 1873, 1887, 1901, 1906 and 1971.

The 1960s saw the creation of Rochdale College, a large high-rise residence where many students and staff lived. It was not officially connected to the university. Rochdale was established as an alternative to what had been seen as the traditional, authoritarian, and paternalistic structures within universities.[25] The college eventually became a haven for local drug culture, partially because the student organisers contracted a biker gang to provide security. Due to violent clashes with police, political pressure forced the college to close in 1975. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


In the fall of 1969, after Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau decriminalized homosexuality, the University of Toronto Homophile Association, the first gay and lesbian group in Toronto or on any Canadian university campus, was formed. Jearld Moldenhauer, a research assistant at the Faculty of Medicine, placed an advertisement in The Varsity, asking others to join in setting up an organization. While the first meeting drew a meager 16 people — 15 men and one woman — the group quickly established a significant profile within the community and the city at large. Two decades later, David Rayside, a professor of political science, would organize the Committee on Homophobia. Ten years after that, he would help introduce a sexual diversity studies program at University College, to much success.[26] 35 years after the start of LGBT activism at U of T, the student queer community is represented by the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Trans People of the University of Toronto (LGBTOUT).
