Update of the Media Guide to McGill Experts

Every day, members of the local, national, and international media look to McGill for expertise and commentary on a vast range of topics in the news.

We are writing to ask for your collaboration in helping the MRO update the Guide to McGill Experts, ensuring it is as complete and accurate as possible.
