Beatty Memorial Fund Committee

Who we are

Chaired by the Vice-Principal (Research and Innovation), the Beatty Memorial Fund Committee oversees the Beatty Memorial Lecture Series.

The chair invites representatives from Faculties, departments, and institutes across McGill to serve as committee members. Other representatives of the McGill and wider communities also sit on the committee, at the chair’s discretion. In the past, these community representatives have included delegates from the McGill Alumni Association and the Post-Graduate Students’ Society as well as Montreal artists, media personalities, and business leaders.

Committee members serve a three-year term, which can be extended by one or two years. 

What we do

The committee meets twice each academic year, usually in April and November. The main purpose of these meetings is to brainstorm possible Beatty Memorial Lecturers and weigh the merits of any suggestions received between meetings.
