SUBJECT: Message to McGill Researchers on Labour
I write to emphasize with each of you that my office understands
that research is one of the pillars of McGill and its standing as a
leading university. We are all very proud of our research history,
culture and strengths, as well we should be.
As this strike continues, I am greatly concerned about the
effects on morale and the resulting stress it is causing within our
community. I know major efforts are being made by researchers and
their labs to keep our research endeavours at the forefront.
Research is at the heart of our values, and we recognize and
appreciate your extraordinary dedication.
Please know that my office is doing what it can to help us get
through this difficult time. We are working with deans and chairs,
as well as the senior executive, to ensure you have the resources
to keep our scholarship moving forward.
If you have suggestions about how this support can be improved,
please do not hesitate to share them with me. Feel free to contact
me at rose [dot] goldstein [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
Dr. Rose Goldstein
Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations)
