“While the post-secondary sector faces complex and rapidly evolving challenges, York University continues to transcend disciplines, institutions, sectors and borders to maximize the positive impact of our teaching, learning and research for the well-being of the communities we serve. Together, we are tackling issues such as systemic inequality, the changing nature of work, climate change, political polarization and global health.”
— Rhonda Lenton
President & Vice-Chancellor
