Marshall Cohen

An exemplary leader and volunteer, Marshall Cohen served for 22 years on the York University Board of Governors, providing expertise and guidance to four York presidents. From 2000 to 2009, he took on the key leadership role of board Chair.

Cohen has been a generous supporter of the University, most recently through the newly minted Judith and Marshall Cohen Leadership Award for First Generation Students and the York to the Power of 50 campaign. His enormously successful career in government and private industry, combined with his leadership on many non-profit boards, has demonstrated his commitment to giving back and inspired the whole York community.
