We believe all of us can play a role in building a more welcoming and respectful campus community. From funding opportunities to getting involved in programs designed to engage students, staff, or faculty, there are many opportunities to support inclusion.
If you’ve experienced an issue, here are some steps you can take for help:
Get in touch
Contact the Faculty of Dentistry's EDI Committee by email: edi.dentistry [at] mcgill.ca
Make a complaint
If you have experienced harassment or discrimination, you are encouraged to lodge a formal complaint with the University. For more information on the process of reporting harassment, discrimination and sexual violence, please visit McGill University’s How to Report page. Please know that all complaints are strictly confidential.
Reach out to the Ombudsperson for Students
As the Ombudsperson for Students, Professor Patricia Faison Hewlin provides an independent, impartial and confidential service through which students may seek the just, fair and equitable resolution of any University-related concern. Get in touch.
Visit the Student Wellness Hub
The Student Wellness Hub is your place to go for their holistic health and wellness needs. It provides access to basic physical and mental health services, as well as health promotion and peer support programs, in convenient locations at both our Macdonald and downtown campuses. Get in touch.
Access Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP)
We all face problems, and sometimes these problems become too difficult for us to manage on our own. Employees may need assistance, advice, or just someone who will listen. Whatever personal, family, or work-related difficulties may be adversely affecting your life, your Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) is there to provide support. Learn more.
