What is Making a Martlet?
Making a Martlet is a new workshop for all incoming students who will be living in our residence halls, on both of our campuses.
Led by the Office of the Dean of Students, this workshop is developed and delivered by a team from across the university, and helps students successfully transition into the McGill community.
What happens at the Making a Martlet workshop?
Making a Martlet is a one-hour, interactive workshop that introduces students to: their rights and responsibilities; McGill’s culture of respect and diversity; education and information on consent, gender and sexuality; and non-academic programming opportunities.
The workshop uses TurningPoint software, which allows students to test their knowledge using their cellphones as an interactive quiz platform.

We are proud to announce that Making a Martlet has been certified as a Silver McGill Sustainable Event. To achieve this certification, we implemented actions such as educating our presenters on interacting with diverse populations, ensuring our event locations are as barrier-free as possible, and reducing the possible waste created from our event.
