TORONTO  – York University students will be back in class by March 23, after the school’s senate approved a motion to resume classes despite the ongoing strike.

Classes in the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design, Faculty of Education, Glendon, Faculty of Health, and Faculty of Science will resume on Tuesday.

Classes in the Faculty of Environmental Studies and classes in the Faculty of Liberal Arts that haven’t already resumed will resume on March 23.
