"McGill is here because of its students – who are among the most amazing, bright and engaged students on the planet. I'm proud to be their dean."


- Christopher Buddle, Dean of Students

We would like to acknowledge that McGill University is located on land, which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
