York University

Organization Type

York University is a WIL partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER).

Its mission is the pursuit, preservation and dissemination of knowledge. York University promises excellence in research and teaching in pure, applied and professional fields. They test the boundaries and structures of knowledge and cultivate critical intellect.

This partnership between BHER and York University will offer more than 60 open-ended, multi-disciplinary, partner-linked projects through York University’s Capstone Network called “Project Commons”. The projects focus on addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), many of which are COVID-19 related. The Commons will also offer a space for students and professors to connect and create further project-based WIL opportunities.
