York President to hold town hall with faculty, staff and students Sept. 21

Seeking answers to questions is what a university is all about. What has York accomplished this year? Where are we going from here?

Join President & Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri and the rest of the senior executive team at the President’s Town Hall – an interactive dialogue bringing York University faculty, staff and students together.

The town hall will take place Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 11am into the noon hour, in the Sandra Faire & Ivan Fecan Theatre, Accolade East Building, Keele campus. All students, faculty, staff and parents are welcome.

Right: York President & Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri

Shoukri will talk about the growth and evolution of York, its recent successes, and the opportunities and challenges moving forward. Then it’s your turn to ask questions to the entire executive team.

Joining Shoukri for the Q&A period will be Gary Brewer, vice-president finance & administration; Robert Haché, vice-president research & innovation; Patrick Monahan, vice-president academic & provost; Jennifer Sloan, vice-president university relations; and Robert Tiffin, vice-president students. The Q&A will be moderated by York law Professor Lisa Philipps, director of the York Centre for Public Policy & Law.

Can’t attend in person? There is more than one way to participate. The town hall will be available to watch via webcast through the president's website.

In addition, questions can be sent in advance by e-mail to the president at and via Twitter using the hashtag #yutownhall.
