Outreach for Black Communities

Support for Black learners

The Black community outreach team builds intentional relationships in Black communities and creates engagement and mentorship programming for high school students, CEGEP students, and young adults. We’re working to implement McGill’s Action plan to address Anti-Black racism and increase access to higher education for Black youth. Our team can help you map out your academic path, whether you’re exploring your options, or interested in studying at McGill.

McGill University is on land that long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst
Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge
and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which
peoples of the world now gather.
