About Us

New College was formed on July 1, 2009, under the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies at York University, as the newest of 9 colleges within our institution.

Every student in ADMS, HRM, IT or DEM is added to the New College Announcements email distribution (NC-ANNOUNCE). This is to ensure that students are aware of upcoming events! If there are any questions (e.g. not receiving announcements and wanting to be included in the distribution list) please feel free to email us at newcol@yorku.ca.

  • Mission: provide ALL students with a space where “they can participate in student government, attend social activities, get academic help, work, volunteer” (York's Colleges), acquire new skills, network and make friends. Follow the Lizzio model to help York University with student retention.
  • Vision 2020: make New College a strong and sustainable social and intellectual community for students with strong connection with alumni and faculty; prepare students for their life beyond graduation.
