It’s ‘an exciting time to be at York,’ says president in new video

York University President & Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri is welcoming back students for another academic year a little differently than usual. This year, the president is providing an update through a new video on issues and initiatives that affect the entire York community.

In the high-definition video, available on the Office of the President website and on YouTube, Shoukri discusses several transformative projects that are currently underway at York, including new and enhanced buildings at the Keele and Glendon campuses and the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension at Keele. He also notes the great strides York is making in the area of research and highlights some recent award recognition it has received.

Other topics include safety, sustainability, fundraising and the University’s White Paper process. See the video here:
