York University is in the process of developing an Integrated, Institutional-level Strategic Plan for Internationalization and Global Engagement (I3SP), building on York’s international engagement. The I3SP will be the basis of York University’s university-wide efforts to build on its strengths, create a distinct vision and expand opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to contribute towards local and global impact.
The President’s Council on Internationalization and Global Engagement was established in Spring 2019 and over the last 4 months, representatives from across the University community provided inputs in the preparation of the Issue Paper.
As part of the planning process, we are pleased to invite you to the launch of the Issue Paper and University-wide consultations to shape the next phase of Internationalization and Global Engagement at York University.

York University’s vision as a community-engaged university committed to the social, economic, environmental, cultural and other well-being of society reflects its understanding of the interconnection of global and local issues. York’s global reach and engagement of its faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners is wide ranging, including international academic and research collaborations, centres in India and Costa Rica, international students from 178 countries, and global learning opportunities such as exchanges, internships and study abroad courses for students, as well as alumni in more than 40 countries. This commitment to global engagement is reaffirmed and referenced in key planning documents (Provostial White Paper, 2010; University Academic Plan 2015-20; and the Institutional Integrated Resource Plan).
We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.
