After last year’s overwhelming success, President Mamdouh Shoukri is excited to swap roles with a York University undergraduate student for a day in York University’s second annual “President for a Day” contest.
On Feb. 26, Shoukri will experience life as a student, and the lucky winner will experience what it is like to be “President”.
“I am really looking forward to spending a day in the life of a student here at York,” says Shoukri, president & vice-chancellor. “I had such a great experience last year swapping roles with Rabia Sajun that I couldn’t wait to engage with the community yet again.”
Shoukri will break out his pens and a backpack and attend the student’s classes and other on-campus commitments, while the student will be required to attend the president’s meetings and partake in other obligations and duties.
If you are a York undergraduate student and you think you have what it takes, or know of someone who might make a good candidate, submit a resume and a 500-word written or video essay on the topic: “What would be your top three priorities that would directly impact students if you were appointed President of York University?”
All submissions must be received no later than 4pm on Feb. 1. The submissions will then be reviewed by a selection committee, and the winner will be announced on Feb. 13.
