At the heart of McGill University’s commitment to equity, the Office of Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) works to ensure an equitable and inclusive experience for all students, staff, and faculty. SEDE believes that equity, diversity and inclusion are essential to the academic excellence and service to society for which McGill is known and continuously strives.

SEDE's mission is carried out through education and awareness-raising programs and initiatives which recognize and integrate diverse perspectives and experiences, and foster meaningful, respectful engagement in all aspects of life at McGill.

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
