Welcome to the first issue of YFile, York’s e-mail news service to the University community.

Each weekday morning faculty and staff will receive a copy of Y File providing you with the latest news and information about York. York students will find Y File on the York Web site, on the Current Students hub page and on the Faculty & Staff hub page.

YFile is an integral part of the University’s efforts to communicate more proactively with the York community. Its intent is to help forge greater connection among faculty and staff by providing up-to-the-minute news about York’s achievements, successes and opportunities. Look for headline news items, current weather conditions, events of the day, who’s saying what in the media, up-to-date research opportunities, faculty and staff job postings, news especially for students, senate and board of governors synopses, the latest construction, transportation and security information, and more.

If you have news you would like to submit, contact Cathy Carlyle at ccarlyle@yorku.ca or Beverley Else at else@yorku.ca, or click the Submit Your News button in your YFile. We’d like to hear from you.

The University community uses a number of different Web browsers, and while we try to accommodate everyone, some browsers may experience technical difficulties for the first few days. Please let us know if this happens so we can fix it.

Watch your e-mail or check your hub page each weekday morning for YFile, the latest news about York’s remarkable community.
