York University

York University was founded in 1959 and is Canada’s third largest university. It has over 280 international university partners and includes a campus in Hyderabad, India, and an ecocampus in Costa Rica.

York University is known for championing new ways of thinking that drive teaching and research excellence.  York University has a proud commitment to give a diverse demographic of students access to a high quality, research-intensive learning environment committed to the public good.  Meaningful and sometimes unexpected careers result from cross-disciplinary programming, innovative course design, and diverse experiential education opportunities.  York University is among the top 40 institutions for global leadership on advancing the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The Schulich School of Business and the Osgoode Hall Law School are ranked top in Canada. Glendon College is unique in Canada as it requires students to study in both English and French. The Lassonde School of Engineering creates “renaissance engineers” with an emphasis on entrepreneurship, social consciousness, and global citizenship. York University has over 30 student-led start-ups that   fosters collaboration with students and industry to experiment with new innovative technologies and services, like SARIT, the next-gen electric micromobility vehicle.  In 2024, York University will open its doors to the new Markham Campus.

Land acknowledgement: 

York University recognizes that many Indigenous Nations have long standing relationships with the territories upon which York University campuses are located that precede the establishment of York University. York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region.
