What is YCN?

YCN's Mission

We foster excellence in capstone teaching and learning through forging a strong community of practice around capstones at York.

“I’ve learned so much from engineering prof, science profs, health profs and likewise I teach in humanities, they’re learning from me also. So, this is the true interdisciplinary venues where pedagogy can flourish.”

— Carolyn Steele, YCN Associate Director
