The Welcoming YU Back Roadmap

The people of YU are at the centre of the University’s every response to the pandemic, and the Welcoming YU Back Roadmap aims to offer clear and transparent direction for students, staff, faculty, researchers and instructors for the 2021 to 2022 academic year.  The Welcoming YU Back Roadmap identifies the anticipated levels of reopening for in-person and on-campus activities at York.
