York University continues be a leading centre for higher learning recognized around the globe.
Supporting students, faculty, and staff extends beyond the classroom, even when it has become virtual. Through extended holidays, online events, and quarantine support, York continues to be driven by the same spirit of community we have always been able to count on in-person.
Throughout our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, York has stayed focused on the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. This commitment has never wavered — and will not.
York students continue to make an impact well after graduation. Our alumni have played an important role to keep frontline workers safe and support legal organizations throughout the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed widening inequities within Canada and around the world. This has caused us to redouble our efforts here at York to help create for a more equal society and a more just recovery.
Early in the pandemic, York moved most of our work, study, and engagement with one another online. Our shared commitment to virtual teaching, learning, and engagement means that even a challenge as large as COVID-19 can’t derail our community’s progress.
As Canada works to exit the pandemic, it will be crucial for graduates to have the kind of in-demand skills that meet the needs of the jobs of the future. Students continue to build those skills at York University.
Building a better future for students and our surrounding community requires continued growth. Even as COVID-19 changed our way of life, it did not change York’s commitment to moving forward with crucial campus projects designed to better serve our students and our community.
York’s tightknit community is what sets us apart as Canada’s University. That community spirit has been on full display throughout the pandemic as we continue to support the people around us.
When the world is facing troubling times, York University answers the call. Throughout the global fight against COVID-19, York has played a leading role in research, infectious-disease modelling, and helping with vaccination logistics.
