With exams coming to an end, I write to share a personal note with you about the past year and to thank you for the hard work, dedication and engagement with McGill that you have shown in 2011-12.
The second term of Professor Heather Munroe-Blum as Principal ends on June 30, 2013, and a process to find her successor has begun. In accordance with the Statutes of McGill University, an Advisory Committee has been formed.
A message from Principal Heather Munroe-Blum Dear members of the McGill community, I will be holding a webcast at 4 p.m. on April 19, 2012 to answer questions from members of the McGill community. I invite you to join me. If you can’t watch the webcast live, it will be recorded and made available on the blog as soon as possible.
Please note that members of the University community who would like to observe today’s Senate meeting may do so via a live feed broadcast in the auditorium of the Redpath Museum.
Please note that tomorrow’s Senate discussion of the Jutras Report will be live-streamed on the web to allow more people to observe the discussion. The meeting begins at 2:30 p.m. and the discussion is scheduled early in the agenda.
During the Nov. 29 webcast, Principal Heather Munroe-Blum fielded questions on a wide range of topics. She answered about 20 of your questions before time ran out, but you asked lots more, and the Principal's Office is working with units across the University to give you answers.
I have received today Dean Jutras’ Report on the Events of November 10, 2011 – the Report is being released to the McGill community for comment and reaction. The Report, attached, can also be viewed at www.mcgill.ca/dean-jutras-report.
McGill is pleased to announce that Principal and Vice-Chancellor Heather Munroe-Blum has been named as a recipient of Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards for 2011. These awards are given out by the Women’s Executive Network, Canada’s leading organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of women in management, executive, professional and board roles.
I have heard from many of you since the troubling events of November 10 on our downtown campus. Upset, anger, and concerns have been expressed. There is a worry that McGill is moving away from being an open, tolerant and safe environment.
