This conference will provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to present their primary research, answer questions and engage in general discussion with their peers. Each session will be chaired by a McGill professor or graduate student. Two panels will include the presentation of equity-related research by seven students while a third panel will discuss the impact of Maclean magazine’s “Too Asian” article last fall which labeled Canadian universities as “too” Asian.
Both events are free and open to the McGill community as well as to the public. Thanks go out to the generous supporters: PGSS, Queer McGill, Media@McGill, the SSMU Campus Life Fund, and the McGill Alumni Association.
