Driving positive change across our campuses, in the community, and around the world

York University is an exceptionally diverse and inclusive community working towards the greater good by tackling complex societal issues. Through purposeful research, innovative course design and education, and collaboration we are collectively creating positive change. On this page, you will see a selection of stories showcasing how our faculty, students, and alumni are impacting society through creative solutions.

From our founding more than 60 years ago, York has been a different kind of university, one that is committed to engaging with the community around us and using that engagement to drive positive change.
