Job: York University has 55,000 students in 10 faculties on four campuses. We have 192,000 alumni all around the world. We are the third largest university in Canada and yet we were founded only in 1959. So we are young, growing, vibrant, interdisciplinary and research oriented. In the past eight years we have added eight buildings to our largest campus, raised the academic entry standard of our students, and begun a great many academic programs and initiatives. I am now in the 8th year of a ten year term as President and will retire in 2007. At that point, I'll get on with my major research project(with two former colleagues from the University of Toronto) which is a study of women's economic lives and involves newly released data from over 100 years of Canadian censuses. Recent accomplishments: Woman of Distinction Award from the YWCA,and for the past three years selected as one of the 100 most powerful women in Canada. Personal news: I also serve as a director of a number of voluntary associations as well as Manulife Financial(owner of John Hancock in the USA) and one of the oldest property and casualty insurers in Canada, The Gore Mutual founded in 1836.
