Dear Members of the McGill Community, The McGill University Budget for fiscal year 2010-2011 marks a series of transitions – a new accounting methodology, a new fiscal year end, and the closing of our first multi-year allocation plan linked to clearly articulated strategic academic priorities, which include sustaining strength in core fields across the board.
To: All McGill Staff and Students. Last night, AGSEM, the union representing Teaching Assistants and Demonstrators at McGill, declared a strike against the University.

Mercury, the official name of the McGill online course evaluation system, is replacing MOLE (its former name) throughout the Minerva login site. On June 1, look for Mercury instead of MOLE on Minerva's Student, Faculty and SR administration menus. None of the functionality has changed for this renaming. You should continue to access your course evaluations as before. For the official announcement issued by the Provost on the new name, click on "Details."
