Knit one, purl two. Students engage in a little woolly charity for the Knitting Knetwork on International Car Free Day, September 22. McTavish Street was closed off to traffic, thanks to the efforts of McGill. Danielle DeLuca, first-year Arts (far left), concentrates intently on the square she's making for blankets to give to Dans La Rue, an organization that helps homeless youth. Katherine Nadeau, fourth-year Arts, reaches over to check out the handiwork of Nguyen Thanh-Ly, third-year East Asian studies (far right). Other events scheduled for the day included a rollerblade slalom and sidewalk art competition.

Air and space law conference takes wing

An upcoming conference hosted by the Institute of Air and Space Law will address all the thorny legal problems arising from modern air travel — privacy, sovereignty, safety and even the environment.

Let's talk science

An eager group brings McGill graduate students into school classrooms to introduce little ones to the world of frog innards, test tubes and robots.

Tasty Bronfman renovations

The Bronfman Building has a slick new look, with an exterior canopy and wood interior. The snazzy lobby also comes with a new bistro, catering to an upscale campus market.



Entre nous with Provost Luc Vinet


Academic renewal: Brain gain for McGill — McGill has been hiring about 100 professors a year. The huge numbers are crucial — without the frenzied recruitment, an expected retirement bulge on the horizon could claim half of McGill's academic staff. Provost Luc Vinet explains how and why academic renewal is dealing with the issue.
