IGSF is committed to promoting safer spaces in the classroom and throughout the McGill community at large. We encourage instructors to develop pedagogical approaches that cultivate a classroom culture that is as free from barriers as possible; that encourages inclusivity and diversity; and that demonstrates a commitment to equity and social justice. The Social Equity and Diversity Education Office offers workshops and training on equity issues; we encourage all of our instructors to take advantage of what SEDE has to offer.
