As Glendon’s founding principal Escott Reid listened to Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson give his speech on the occasion of Glendon’s inauguration in 1966, he was no doubt confident that his vision of a bilingual liberal arts campus would soon come to be. Set on the historic Wood family estate in a lush parkland in the heart of Toronto over the past half-century, Glendon has blossomed into an institution unique in Canada for its mission and its support of bilingualism. . Students, professors and staff hail from over 100 countries around the world and value the opportunity to study, live and work in English and French – and other languages.
