Mobilizing New Ways of Thinking: $190 million

The best professors and students undertake research and learning opportunities that are globally relevant, while also embracing the changing needs of their local communities. At York University, balancing these twin missions is both a unique strength and a priority. York’s 1,500 full‐time faculty members in 11 faculties and 25 research centres are leading some of the most ambitious research projects on the planet. We also offer novel experiential education programs across all areas to provide students with the kind of deep knowledge that only comes from lived experience. Attracting outstanding scholars and introducing more unique learning opportunities for students are important priorities of Impact: The Campaign for York University.

With your support, we will:

  • Create 30 new research chairs, professorships and post‐doctoral fellowships to lead new idea creation and mobilization
  • Enhance experiential and research‐based opportunities that provide hands‐on learning for students
  • Build on our research and teaching strengths across all disciplines and programs
