Mission & History

Our Mission

To make university education equitable and accessible.

Our History

2The Transition Year Program (TYP) at York University launched its pilot phase in September 2010 with the first cohort of 28 students. TYP@York is the result of a constructive collaboration between York University, the York University Faculty Association (YUFA) and our community partners fostered and supported by the York University - TD Community Engagement Centre (CEC). TYP@York is a wonderful example of unique accessible academic programming designed to lower the barriers to university education.
