University of Toronto Chancellor Emerita Rose Wolfe (BA 1938 UC) is being remembered today for her extraordinary leadership, kindness, and her commitment to social justice.
Wolfe, whose contributions to her country were recognized with the Order of Canada, died last week at the age of 100.
“The University of Toronto has lost a beloved champion, a distinguished alumna, and an incredibly warm and generous friend,” President Meric Gertler said. “Through her exemplary service as Chancellor, as a member of our Governing Council, and in an amazing number of volunteer positions, Rose Wolfe has left a magnificent legacy. So many aspects of life at U of T have benefitted from her leadership and dedication, from the experience of commuter students to alumni engagement, from our global academic standing to fundraising and philanthropy.
“She will be greatly missed, but so fondly remembered.”
