Vice-President Research & Innovation to host PIER open forum Dec.9

Robert Hache

York’s Vice-President Research & Innovation Robert Haché will host an open forum discussion about the Plan for the Intensification and Enhancement of Research (PIER) on Dec. 9, from 10am to 12pm, in the Senate Chamber, N940 Ross Building.

The purpose of the Open Forum is to provide feedback to the York community regarding the community consultations and discussions over the past few months, with respect to the development of PIER.

“The community consultations have been extremely valuable for gaining feedback about the goals, values and objectives that will help shape the continued progress of York towards becoming recognized as a comprehensive, research-intensive institution and we greatly appreciate the feedback we have received from the York community,” said Haché.  “The development of York’s Plan for the Intensification & Enhancement of Research will help achieve the university’s vision in further advancing excellence in research and scholarship.”

The Open Forum will also provide an opportunity for members of the York community to ask questions and provide additional feedback on the development of the PIER and the ongoing consultations. All York University students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

Community members interested in attending the PIER Open Forum are asked to RSVP.
