October 19, 2020

York University has announced a gift from the R.P. Bratty Family Foundation toward its new Markham Centre Campus. Slated to open in Fall 2023, the new campus will offer “employer-aligned degree programs, certificates and other credentials” in the growing areas of data analytics, business and entrepreneurship, and new media and communications. “This contribution will not only support the MCC’s ability to provide a high-quality student learning experience in newly emerging and high demand programs,” said YorkU President Rhonda L. Lenton, “but facilitate the research, innovation and creative activities contributing to York’s larger mission to build inclusive and resilient communities in one of the fastest-growing regions in Canada.” York (ON)
