In November 2013, McGill’s inquisitive spirit was on display during its first weeklong celebration of innovation and creativity. With a series of AUCC Open Doors events showcasing McGill’s engagement in the community, open discussion on innovative ideas, the McGill Community learned more about innovation and the QI role as a an innovative incubator in Montreal’s burgeoning South-West area.
On Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 various group community engagement activities will occur on campus and around the city. These activities will highlight some form of collaboration between the University and a Montreal community organization. Students, staff, faculty and alumni are encouraged to participate in these activities, during which they will learn experientially about the societal issues and challenges facing communities in Montreal while doing something to address them.
