Welcome to all incoming York students and to all existing students in the departments and programs that are affiliated to McLaughlin College.
This is a new position that has been created to help improve the academic experience for York University students, particularly first year students.
I am here to help students find a better sense of community at York.
One way that will be done is through the peer mentoring network that will be set up through the College. A group of upper year students will be selected to assist first year students with their academic life at York. This will help with feelings of isolation and provide a contact point for information about various aspects of the York experience.
I will also be active, along with the Master of the College who is Professor David Leyton-Brown, in coordinating and helping with various dimensions of College activities.
Since becoming College Academic Life Coordinator, I have been impressed by the spirit of community life at McLaughlin College, and hope that more students can become involved and experience it for themselves.
I look forward to meeting with all of you at the College orientation in the second week of September.
