Administrative Notices news
The McGill community has responded quickly and admirably to the disaster in Haiti, and there is still time to help make a difference. Here is an update on all fundraising efforts for Haiti relief taking place across campus.
On Tuesday, January 19 at 4:53 p.m., universities across Quebec will join in a moment of silence on their campuses in memory of the victims of last week’s catastrophic earthquake in Haiti.
The McGill community continues to watch with apprehension as news of the devastating earthquake in Haiti develops. We are making inquiries about any members of our community who may be in that country at the moment and we will continue to do so in the coming days as communications are restored.
Recent advertisements purchased by MUNACA in campus newspapers and some Montreal dailies have contained misleading and inaccurate information. The University administration understands that in the heat of a labour dispute, rhetoric can go beyond normal discourse and things can be said or done, in support of a position, which might not otherwise be advanced. Nonetheless, errors demand correction.
Dear members of the McGill community, I am writing to you to describe McGill’s financial challenges in a time of unprecedented economic uncertainty and our approach for facing this challenge. I ask for your ongoing support as we remain committed to our great University and its powerful and worthy mission during an unpredictable time.
