Parent & Family Orientation

As a parent of an incoming student, we know you have many questions. Connect with us at our special Parent & Family Orientation event to learn about the services we offer to support your student. Get a taste of the university experience and discover ways to ease the transition to life at York. You'll also have a chance to meet college staff and ask questions. By getting the information you need, you'll be better able to ensure your student's success.

This year, Parent and Family Orientation will include 2 sessions:

Session 1: August 11, 2021 - 9:30 - 11am (EST)

A centrally coordinated virtual session featuring a welcome from the VP Students and presentations about Student Wellness, Academic Resources, International Student Supports, and Student Finances.

This is a LA&PS Faculty specific virtual session that provides information about program and student specific services and resources from the college communities that students will be joining.


McLaughlin College is York University’s public policy college. We specialize in the critical analysis and understanding of public policy. Our vibrant and engaged college community, comprised of students, staff, faculty, Fellows and alumni is one of the most interesting and active within our Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) and within York University as a whole. We help students exceed their personal higher education goals through encouraging participation in many of our College’s intellectual, political, social, cultural and athletic activities, in the continuous development of the “whole person.”
