It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the annual President’s Town Hall meeting taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 11am in the Tribute Communities Recital Hall in the Accolade East Building.

I will be joined at the meeting by Provost Lenton and Vice-Presidents Brewer, Haché and O’Hagan, who will provide brief updates following my opening remarks on the impact York University is having on our local and global communities.

The formal presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer period where community members can ask questions about institutional achievements, initiatives and developments.

Questions can be asked in person, online using our submission form, or submitted on Twitter using the hashtag #YUTownhall.

This year’s Town Hall will be preceded by a Town Hall Community Café at 10:30am in the CIBC Lobby in the Accolade East Building. The Community Café is an informal reception hosted by myself and the VPs. All students, staff and faculty are invited to join us for this opportunity to connect over light refreshments before the Town Hall meeting.

If you are able to attend this year’s Community Café and Town Hall meeting, please RSVP at

For those unable to attend in person, the Town Hall will be webcast.

For the Glendon community, the Office of the Principal will host a viewing of the Town Hall live stream in the BMO Conference Centre at Glendon Hall from 11am to 12:30pm.

This will be my final Town Hall as president, so I warmly encourage all students, staff, faculty and alumni to join us for this important conversation.

I look forward to seeing you on October 11.
