Knowledge Mobilization

If universities have a duty to help societies seek solutions to sustainability challenges, our job is not done until the knowledge held within our walls is at work out in the world.

Personal and Cultural Enrichment Program

The Personal and Cultural Enrichment Program, part of McGill’s Faculty of Continuing Studies, offers lifelong learning opportunities on many topics, including sustainability.

Community Engagement

McGill is not an isolated enclave. Our students, faculty, and staff are deeply networked with communities here in Montreal and across the globe.

In the Community

McGill’s community engagement activities are too numerous to quantify, and they reflect the decentralized nature of the university. There is no single catalogue of all of the community engagement underway at McGill, but the In the Community website provides a snapshot of some of the projects underway.

Orientation and Belonging

A strong community fabric is the glue that enables other sustainability efforts to stick.


It can be intimidating to arrive in a new place. McGill offers orientation sessions, resources, and training opportunities to all new students, faculty, and staff to help them integrate smoothly into life at McGill.

Health and Wellness

The health and wellbeing of McGill students and staff is an important element of sustainability. If our own lifestyles aren’t sustainable, what is?

McGill’s Human Resources department offers many resources to help staff lead healthy lives, ranging from organized walks up Mont Royal to health fairs, free flu vaccines, and lists of fun lunchtime outings to lure workaholic staff away from their desks.

Since the Sustainability Projects Fund's inception many projects have been successfully implemented to further green McGill.

About the Sustainability Projects Fund

The SPF mandate is to: "Build a culture of sustainability on McGill campuses through the development and seed-funding of interdisciplinary projects." It creates opportunities for the McGill community to actively engage in sustainability initiatives on campus, and thus appropriate and be change agents in their own studying and working environment.
