Community work has applications to academic pursuits
Published May 7, 2015, McGill Reporter
Through a formal partnership established in 2014, where each benefits from and extends the expertise and reach of the other, SEDE and the Faculty of Education work in tandem to strengthen equity and diversity education at McGill and beyond.
Public lecture: Perspectives on bilingualism: From birth to aging
Living in a city with many languages, we are often confronted with personal debates about what are the best decisions to make for our children and for ourselves. Have you wondered when is the optimal time and in what way to introduce a second language to your child, or whether raising a child in a bilingual environment can create confusion? Have you heard that being bilingual might slow down cognitive decline in aging and provide a buffer against neurodegenerative disease?
Dr. Laura Stone, Associate Professor with the Faculty of Dentistry, and former McGill Dentistry Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. David Seminowicz, spent two days with a productions team from the NHK, Japan’s national public broadcasting organisation, to film a fifty minute special TV program about chronic back pain, to be aired in the end of June in Japan.
Congratulations to Dr. Ana Velly on her recent successes!
Dr. Velly was granted an NIDCR / NIH U19 Cooperative Agreement Grant for the project “Assessing the management of temporomandibular muscle and joint disorders pain patients in the network – The National Dental Patient-based Research Network”. Dr. Velly will be lead epidemiologist and co-investigator for the study. The grant is valued at $129 888 per year for 2 years.

Invitation Au Lancement du Livre: Intervenir Auprès de Sectes Religieuses en Protection de la Jeunesse: Un défi
Lancement du Livre: Intervenir Auprés de Sectes Religieuses en Protection de la Jeunesse. Par Lorraine Derocher.
The QS World University Rankings, regarded as “one of the three most influential and widely observed university measures,” recently published their 2015 international rankings. McGill’s Faculty of Education shows a stunning improvement since last year’s publication, jumping up thirteen spots.
The Web Conferencing Service (Adobe Connect) will be unavailable on Monday, May 11, from 7am to 12pm due to a scheduled upgrade.
No conferences will be scheduled during this time.
Please note that due to the extended University year end period, the month of April will not be closing according to the usual month end schedule. April is scheduled to be closed on May 30th. This means that financial statements for April are still not available. An email notification will be sent when the financial statements are ready to be picked up in Minerva.
Until April is closed, please be mindful that fund balances may not include the new fiscal year’s budgets nor the budget carry forwards.
Thank you for your patience.
