Mamdouh Shoukri

As my final term as president draws to a close, I often am asked what it has been like to lead York University for the last decade, and what my thoughts are on York’s future. Recently, I have also been asked, “If you were to give your last lecture, what would you say?”

These are excellent questions, so I thought this might be an ideal opportunity to invite all students, faculty, staff and alumni to join me for a chance to sit down together for a “Last Lecture.” My remarks will be followed by a question-and-answer period with the community, and a reception. Refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP to let me know if you are able to attend, and click here to view the video invitation for this event.

I look forward to seeing you on March 23.


Mamdouh Shoukri
President & Vice-Chancellor
