THE HONOURABLE
R. ROY MCMURTRY, Q.C.
L’HONORABLE
R. ROY MCMURTRY, C.R.
The Honourable Roy McMurtry, former Ontario chief justice
and attorney general and Canadian high commissioner to the
United Kingdom, is the 12th chancellor of York University.
L’honorable Roy McMurtry, ancien juge en chef et procureur
général de l’Ontario et haut-commissaire du Canada au
Royaume-Uni, est le douzième chancelier de l’Université York.
Born in Toronto, Mr. McMurtry is a graduate of Osgoode Hall
Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1958. After
practising as a trial lawyer for 17 years, he was elected to the
Ontario legislature in 1975, where he was immediately
appointed attorney general by then-Premier William Davis. As
attorney general, Mr. McMurtry argued major constitutional
cases in the Supreme Court of Canada and played a key role in
the negotiations leading to the patriation of the Constitution
with an entrenched Charter of Rights in 1982. Mr. McMurtry
left office in 1985 to become Canada’s high commissioner to
the United Kingdom. In 1996, he was appointed chief justice
of Ontario after serving as the chief justice of the Superior
Court of Justice.
Né à Toronto, M. McMurtry est diplômé de l’école de droit
Osgoode Hall et a été admis au Barreau de l’Ontario en 1958.
Après avoir exercé comme avocat plaidant, il a été élu à
l’Assemblée législative en 1975, où il a immédiatement été
nommé procureur général par William Davis, alors premier
ministre de l’Ontario. À titre de procureur général, M.
McMurtry a débattu des questions d’ordre constitutionnel
importantes à la Cour suprème du Canada et a joué un rôle clé
dans les négociations ayant mené au rapatriement de la
Constitution incluant une chartre des droits en 1982. M.
McMurtry a abandonné le poste en 1985 pour devenir hautcommissaire du Canada au Royaume-Uni. En 1996, il a été
nommé juge en chef de l’Ontario àpres avoir été juge en chef
de la Cour supérieure de justice.
Mr. McMurtry is the founder and president of The Osgoode
Society, a body established in 1979 for the writing of Canadian
legal history which to date has published 70 books. In 2007,
his significant contributions to the legal profession were
recognized with Osgoode Hall Law School’s Award of
Excellence (The Robinette Medal) and the President of the
Canadian Bar Association’s Award of Merit. He also received
an honorary degree from York University in 1991. He was
invested in the Order of Ontario in January 2008.

HISTORY OF YORK
UNIVERSITY
L’HISTOIRE DE
L’UNIVERSITÉ YORK
York University was founded in March 1959, when its charter
was approved by the legislature of the Province of Ontario,
and enrolled its first class of 76 students in September 1960.
Fondée en mars 1959, date à laquelle le Parlement de
l’Ontario a approuvé sa charte, l’Université York a ouvert sa
première classe avec soixante-dix-sept étudiants en 1960.
York was originally established as an affiliate of the University
of Toronto, but became independent by mutual consent in
October 1965. York University moved from Falconer Hall (on
Queen’s Park Crescent near the Parliament Buildings) to the
Glendon campus in 1961, and each succeeding year has seen
a major advance in growth.
York, qui était au départ affiliée à l’Université de Toronto, a
pris son indépendance par consentement mutuel en Octobre
1965. Elle a quitté Falconer Hall (Queen’s Park Crescent) pour
le campus de Glendon en 1961, et a franchi chaque année une
nouvelle étape décisive.
In 1962, the Joseph E. Atkinson College first offered degree
courses for evening and part-time students. In 1963, the
Faculty of Arts and Science introduced its own distinctive
program of degree studies, and the Faculty of Graduate
Studies was established. The University accepted its first
postgraduate students in 1964.
En 1962, le Collège Joseph E. Atkinson a offert aux étudiants à
temps partiel les premiers cours du soir menant à l’obtention
d’un grade. En 1963, la Faculté des arts et des sciences a créé
à son tour des programmes d’études sanctionnés par l’octroi
d’un grade et la Faculté des études supérieures a été fondée.
Les premiers programmes d’études supérieures ont été offerts
en 1964.
The Keele campus, which became the principal seat of the
University, was opened at Keele Street and Steeles Avenue in
1965. In the following year, Glendon College was officially
opened and the Faculty of Administrative Studies (now the
Schulich School of Business) was established at the Keele
campus.
Devenu depuis le siège principal de l’Université, le campus de
York, au croisement de la rue Keele et de l’avenue Steeles, a
été inauguré en 1965. L’année suivante a vu l’ouverture
officielle du Collège universitaire Glendon et la création de la
Faculté d’administration (maintenant l’École Schulich des
hautes études commerciales) sur le campus de York.
In 1967, the Senate enacted legislation to establish a Faculty
of Fine Arts. In 1968, the Faculty of Environmental Studies was
established, and the Osgoode Hall Law School became the
Faculty of Law of the University (under the terms of an
agreement which had been entered into with the Law Society
of Upper Canada in 1965).
En 1967, le Sénat a décidé la création de la Faculté des beauxarts. En 1968, la Faculté des études environnementales a été
créée et l’École de droit Osgoode Hall est devenue la Faculté
de droit de l’Université (aux termes d’un accord passé avec la
Société de droit du Haut Canada en 1965).
A Faculty of Science was created in 1969 by separating
biology, chemistry and physics from the Faculty of Arts and
Science, which then became the Faculty of Arts.
In 1971, the Senate approved the establishment of the Faculty
of Education. In 2000, Joseph E. Atkinson College was
renamed the Joseph E. Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and
Professional Studies. In 1990, the Faculty of Science was
renamed the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science, and
subsequently, in 2004, became the Faculty of Science and
Engineering. In 2006, the Faculty of Health was approved
which brought together Nursing, Health Policy and
Management, Kinesiology and Health Science, and
Psychology.
The non-Faculty colleges appeared annually after 1964:
Founders (1965), Vanier (1966), Winters (1967), McLaughlin
(1968), Stong (1969), Calumet (1970), and Norman Bethune
(1971). York University now graduates approximately 8,000
students annually.
6 / October 2008 Convocation
En 1969, la Faculté des sciences et des arts s’est scindée en
Faculté des sciences, chargée de l’enseignement de la
biologie, de la chimie et de la physique, et en Faculté des arts.
En 1971, le Sénat a approuvé la création de la Faculté des
sciences de l’éducation. En 2000, le Collège Joseph E. Atkinson
a pris le nom de Faculté des études libérales et
professionnelles Joseph E. Atkinson. En 1990, la Faculté de
sciences a pris le nom de Faculté des sciences pures et
appliquées et par la suite, en 2004 devint la Faculté des
sciences et de l’ingénierie. La faculté de la santé, approuvée
en 2006, regroupe les programmes de soins infirmiers, de
politique et administration de la santé, de kinésiologie et
sciences de la santé et de psychologie.
Enfin, les Collèges qui ne sont pas des Facultés ont fait leur
apparition à un rythme annuel après 1964 : Founders (1965),
Vanier (1966), Winters (1967), McLaughlin (1968), Stong
(1969), Calumet (1970) et Norman Bethune (1971).
L’Université York décerne des diplômes à environ huit mille
étudiants par an.
THE MACE
The mace, which the University Beadle carries,
was a gift to York University from the
City of Toronto in 1964. Each part of the mace has
symbolic significance for the University.
Rendered in brass, the end section is set with stones of
cullet, bloodstone, agate and amazonite
which represent all ethnic sources of Canada.
The shoulder has 10 projections representing Canada’s
provinces. The four arms at the head
of the mace represent the paths which lead to the
ideals that humans strive to achieve.
The arms support an orb whose shape reflects
the universe and its truths.
The orb is executed in the colours of earth and water:
brown, ochre, blue and green.
LA MASSE D’ARMES
La masse que porte le massier de l’université a été offerte
en 1964 par la ville de Toronto à l’Université York. Chaque
partie de la masse a une signification symbolique pour
l’université. La masse est en laiton et sa partie inférieure est
sertie de pierres taillées : hématite, agate et amazonite,
qui représentent toutes les origines ethniques du Canada.
Les dix projections de la partie supérieure
représentent les dix provinces du Canada. Les
quatre bras, au sommet de la masse, représentent les
sentiers de la connaissance et des idéaux que
s’efforce de suivre l’humanité. Les bras soutiennent une
sphère représentant l’univers et ses vérités.
Le globe a les couleurs de la terre et de l’eau :
le brun, l’ocre, le bleu et le vert.

THE COAT OF ARMS OF YORK UNIVERSITY
The upper half of the shield contains two lions of
the City of York; the lower half contains, on a red background,
the white rose of the Royal House of York. The oak sprig
in the crest represents the Tree of Learning and recognizes
York University’s initial affiliation with the University of Toronto.
The York University colours are crimson and white.
ARMOIRIES DE L’UNIVERSITÉ YORK
La moitié supérieure de l’écu porte les deux lions
de la ville de York; dans la moitié inférieure figure, sur fond rouge,
la rose blanche de la Maison royale de York.
La branche de chêne du timbre, qui représente l’Arbre de la
Connaissance, témoigne de l’affiliation initiale de York
à l’Université de Toronto et du ferme soutien qu’elle en a reçu.
Les couleurs de l’Université York sont le blanc et l’écarlate.
8 / October 2008 Convocation
YORK UNIVERSITY
L’UNIVERSITÉ YORK
“A first task of York University will be to use the great traditional
subjects to shed light on the problems of today’s world…No one
in his right mind would today oppose the need for a high degree
of specialization. But to have specialization and nothing else is to
possess but half an education…we shall try to break down the
barriers of specialization, to give to York University students a
sense of the unity of knowledge.”
« La première mission de l’Université York consistera à appliquer
les grandes disciplines traditionnelles pour mieux comprendre
les problèmes actuels...De nos jours, personne sain d’esprit ne
mettrait en doute la nécessité de posséder une spécialisation de
haut niveau. Pourtant, avoir une spécialisation et rien d’autre ne
revient qu’à posséder une demi éducation...c’est pourquoi nous
tenterons d'abolir les barrières de la spécialisation, afin de
donner aux étudiants de l’Université York un sentiment
d’unification des connaissances. »
York’s Founding President Murray Ross, 1960
Murray Ross, président fondateur de l’Université York, 1960
Since its inception in 1959, York University has become worldrenowned for its unique interdisciplinary approach to teaching

interdisciplinary perspective and a modern approach to the
issues facing today's world. York is where students and faculty
from differing disciplines join together to explore problems to

perspective that corresponds closely to the world we live in.

Faculties and 24 interdisciplinary research centres, we conduct
ambitious, innovative research that moves freely across
traditional academic boundaries.
Multicultural and diverse, with a range of views and
perspectives, York's student population is among the most
eclectic in Canada with over 100 different language groups

Congratulations Class of 2008
Congratulations on your graduation and welcome to York University’s alumni community!
As graduates, you are automatically members of the York University Alumni Association (YUAA), joining a global community of more
than 200,000 graduates who enjoy the privileges and perks of YUAA membership.
York is truly an interdisciplinary university that looks at life from all angles. Unfettered by convention and traditional expectations,
York's innovative approach has forged a vibrant institution. Our strength in numbers reflects this passionate approach to education,
and we look forward to the next milestone: York's 50th anniversary in 2009.
As alumni, you are uniquely prepared to face the opportunities and challenges of an ever-changing world with clarity and vision. This
vision is your strength — both as a class and as individuals — and I urge you to keep in touch and be actively involved as a York
graduate, not just with the University but with one another, so that you can draw on each other's insights.
Alumni play a vital role in the life of the University. As graduates, the ongoing reputation of the University affects how others value a
York degree, and we have the opportunity to enhance that value by acting as ambassadors for York's education and research activities.
You can stay in contact with your classmates and get all the news about upcoming events and services through the online enewsletter Alumni Matters, and the Alumni Web site (www.yorku.ca/alumni).
You can maintain contacts and make new ones by attending our special events or by volunteering. You can act as a mentor for current
students, get involved with a York alumni group in your hometown or country, or help York recruit the alumni of the future. You can
also act as advisors to the University, suggesting new ideas and offering constructive feedback.
Your achievement is outstanding! You and your fellow graduates are the best ambassadors for York University. Through your
involvement with the York University Alumni Association you will continue to demonstrate that York prepares its graduates to redefine
the possible.
We wish you every success!
Yours truly,
Guy Burry (BA ‘82)
Chair, York University Alumni Association Board of Directors

Félicitations à la classe de 2008
Félicitations à l'occasion de l'obtention de votre diplôme et bienvenue dans la communauté des diplômés de l'Université York!
En tant que diplômés, vous devenez automatiquement membres de l'Association des diplômés de l'Université York (ADUY); ainsi, vous
joignez les rangs d'une communauté mondiale de 200 000 diplômés et vous bénéficierez de la grande diversité d'avantages et de
services qui sont offerts aux membres de l'ADUY.
York est vraiment une université interdisciplinaire qui a une vision sur tous les aspects de la vie. Libre des entraves des conventions et
des attentes traditionnelles, York est devenu, grâce à son approche novatrice, un établissement plein de vitalité. Notre force,
exprimée en nombres, reflète cette approche passionnée de l'éducation, et c'est avec plaisir que nous attendons le prochain jalon : le
50e anniversaire de York en 2009.
En tant que diplômés, vous êtes déjà prêts à profiter des possibilités offertes et à relever les défis avec une grande clarté de vision
dans un monde en pleine évolution. Cette vision est votre force, aussi bien collectivement pour l'ensemble de votre promotion que
pour les individus qui la composent. Ainsi, je vous encourage à garder le contact, non seulement avec nous, mais aussi les uns avec les
autres, et de participer aux activités offertes aux diplômés de York, afin de tirer profit de l'expérience et des connaissances des uns et
des autres.
Les diplômés jouent un rôle vital dans la vie de l'Université. La réputation continue de celle-ci influe sur la valeur que d'autres
attachent à un diplôme de York, et nous avons la possibilité de rehausser cette valeur grâce à notre rôle d'ambassadeurs et
d'ambassadrices des activités d'éducation et de recherche de York.
Vous pourrez ainsi maintenir le lien avec vos camarades de classe et vous tenir au courant des événements à venir et des services
offerts aux diplômés par l'entremise du bulletin électronique Alumni Matters et du site web Alumni (www.yorku.ca/alumni).
En participant à nos activités spéciales ou en offrant vos services en tant que volontaires, vous pourrez non seulement maintenir le
contact avec vos relations actuelles, mais vous en faire de nouvelles. Vous pourrez remplir les fonctions de mentors pour des étudiants
actuels, participer aux activités d'un groupe de diplômés de York dans votre ville ou dans votre pays, ou aider York à recruter les
diplômés de l'avenir. Vous pourrez aussi remplir le rôle de conseillers et de conseillères pour l'Université en lui suggérant de nouvelles
idées et en offrant une rétroaction constructive.
Votre réussite est remarquable! Vous et les autres diplômés êtes les meilleurs ambassadeurs et ambassadrices de l'Université York.
Grâce à votre participation aux activités de l'Association des diplômés de l'Université York, vous continuerez à démontrer que York
forme ses diplômés à redéfinir les limites du possible.
Nous vous souhaitons tout le succès possible!
Bien à vous,
Guy Burry (BA ‘82)
