President’s Message

Welcome – or welcome back – to York!

Whether you are a new or returning student, administrative staff already working to prepare for the school year, or a faculty member returning to the classroom or joining York for the first time, I want to wish you the very best as we begin the 2019-20 academic year.

This is York’s 60th school season and our community has much to celebrate. But in embracing the York motto of Tentanda Via: The way must be tried, now is also a time for us to look ahead at the next 60 years, and think about how we can innovate to amplify the impact we are making on the well-being of the communities we serve.

At York, you are part of a University that excels in academic performance, scholarship, research and related creative activities. We also know that excellence requires support. Learn about the resources and services available to students, staff, and faculty to aid your growth and well-being.

Let me know what you’re looking forward to most this academic year at #YorkU on social media by tweeting me or tagging me on Instagram @YorkUPresident.

On behalf of all of us at York, I want to once again wish you the very best this academic year, and I look forward to seeing you on campus.

Sincerely,

Rhonda L. Lenton, PhD
President & Vice-Chancellor
