Brampton U of T campus gets crucial support


Mayor Linda Jeffrey is all for it

Brampton, November 13 (CINEWS): Sheridan College has absolutely no issues when it comes to collaborating with the University of Toronto to bring a long-awaited and desired university campus to Brampton.
But for that to happen, Sheridan has to meet some pretty challenging criteria before it can qualify for university status. And as of now, it has a long way to go.
Last September, University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) announced it was actively looking at expanding in burgeoning Brampton. The proposal met with wide public approval and enthusiasm given that for years, residents have been clamoring for a university of its own. Then Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey threw her full support for it. In the past, Sheridan and the city have declared in writing their desires to transform the local college into a university or partner with an existing higher learning institution to establish a university campus in Brampton.
The University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus has been operating for almost 50 years.
While Sheridan wouldn’t object to another university’s proposal to set up a campus, it made sense for a university with well-established roots in Peel region to expand operations to Brampton.
