The Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies (LA&PS) encourages, promotes, and co-ordinates a wide range of academic international initiatives through the development of strategies, policies, guidelines and programs that reflect York University's institutional commitment to internationalization.
We are conscious of ethical and moral dilemmas in recruitment and have introduced funded initiatives for incoming students, faculty and students to enhance and broaden the global experiences of all students, domestic and international. LA&PS promotes diversity, equity, social responsibility and citizenship and has a dedicated office for international initiatives.
This office also liaises with York International and supports LA&PS departments and schools with their internationalization projects.
