Administrative history

Norman Bethune College (initially College 'G' ) was established in 1971. The college' s operations were located in the Steacie Science Building until the 1972-73 academic year when the college moved into its own building. The College was initially associated with many of the community and socially-active programmes and services on campus (LaMarsh Centre on Violence and Conflict Resolution,
York Community Connection, the Chile Project) and, beginning in 1989-90, when faculties were formally linked with the colleges, Bethune began an affiliation with the Faculty of Science which has offices on site. The college' s formal disciplinary theme is Science and Society. Many of the science-related clubs on campus (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics) are housed in the College, along with the York Malaysian/ Singapore Club, the York University Chinese Students ' Association and the Association of Chinese Scholars and Students at York. The College also houses the newspaper, 'The Lexicon ', and the literary publication, 'Borderlines'.
The Master is the senior college officer, aided by a senior tutor, residence dons, the Master 's Advisory Council and the College Fellows. There is an Alumni Association, College Council, and a Residence Council for students.
