Dean's Message

Message from the Interim Dean, Sharon Murphy

The act of education is an act of hope and imagination. In these challenging times we are called upon to infuse our hopes with action and our imaginations with unthought of possibilities.  Anti-Black racism, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the pandemic and climate change have all exposed habits of educational and social practice that ask us to act and imagine new ways forward in education and in society.

We invite you to think with us as we move towards new visions of education, visions of possibility, equity and social justice. This is difficult work, but it must be done individually and collectively.

We, at the Faculty of Education at York University, look forward to this challenge and we welcome you to be part of this project of re-envisioning education. 

Sharon Murphy
Interim Dean, Faculty of Education
