A message from the Deputy Provost (Student Life and Learning)
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mathieu Laperle as McGill’s first Senior Director of Student Housing and Hospitality Services (SHHS), effective June 3, 2013.
Growing up in suburban Montreal, 2013 McGill graduate Martin Legault always had a passion for the environment. At McGill University’s Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, he put that passion into practice, gaining the scientific and practical skills to help address the world’s pressing food and water issues. But when it comes to understanding the complex social, cultural and environmental factors behind food scarcity, there was only so much he could learn in the classroom.
Please be advised that there will be maintenance on the Content Management System (CenterStage, Webtop & Captiva InputAccel) on Wednesday, June 19 between 9pm to Thursday, June 20 at 6am. During this time the system may be slow or it may be unavailable.
Note that parts of the Graduate Admissions System (uApply) rely on the CMS. Therefore application reviewers will not be able to view admissions documents when CMS is down.
We regret any inconvenience that this may cause.
