Want to be president of York U for a day?

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?”
