YorkU Glendon College unveils future direction, including new academic structure

York University’s Glendon College recently approved a restructuring that will promote greater interdisciplinarity and better support research, teaching, and the student experience. Starting in September 2024, Glendon’s academic units will be structured into the following four departments: Glendon Department of Global Communication and Cultures; Glendon Department of Science; Glendon Department of Economics, Business and Mathematics; and Glendon Department of Global and Social Studies. “This new structure presents an opportunity to establish an environment that supports the kind of academic renewal that is needed among today’s universities, where new and innovative ideas are born at the intersection of disciplines,” said Glendon Principal Marco Fiola. Glendon will unveil further adjustments to its academic programming, administrative model, and recruitment efforts in the coming months.
