McGill's Social Equity and Diversity Education Office (SEDE) invites students and members of the McGill community to a symposium on Experiential Community-Engaged Learning and Research (ExCELR) projects led by the Quebec Studies Program, the Faculty of Management, the School of Architecture and the School of Urban Planning

As part of this interactive event, panellists will reflect on the impact of community engagement for undergraduate students and begin a discussion on university-community cooperation.

Several projects have been established in recent years in partnership with McGill University, such as the Southwest Storytelling Hub research-action project coordinated by Jaimie Cudmore (CIRM's BMO Scholar for the academic year 2018-2019) and conducted in with non-profit organizations, Suspicious Fish and Literacy Quebec.


A first panel will take place at Carrefour Sherbrooke (475 Sherbrooke St. West) from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Participants will then be invited to travel to continue the discussion with RISE ambassadors at the Royal Victoria College (3425 University St.), from 1:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Finally, an interdisciplinary colloquium bringing together members of the university community, undergraduates and their supervisors will be held at the Thompson House (3650 McTavish St.), from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
