What's new at SEDE?

This year's My Day at McGill brought more than 170 youth to McGill to show them what kind of opportunities their education to lead to, with help from students in Chemistry, Physics, Medicine, Nursing & Engineering, the McGill Library, and First People's House, to name a few!

Apply to be a HZ Mentor!

Homework Zone (HZ) is an after-school mentoring program connecting McGill University student volunteers with elementary school students in under-served neighbourhoods of Montréal. McGill students volunteer in schools in Montréal's south-west (Verdun, Lasalle), in Kahnawa:ke and Chateauguay (all accessible by public transit).

At HZ, we create an oasis for students where they can challenge themselves and nurture positive relationships within the school environment. The first half of each 90-minute HZ session is dedicated to academic support (ie; homework completion, problem solving, reading), with the second portion focused on imagination-based and academic enrichment activities or workshops offered by McGill students or community groups that focus on creativity, expression and building relationships.

Land Acknowledgment

Map of Montreal

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

Recognizing the history of where you stand is important, and becoming increasingly common practice when hosting events and activities across Canada.

Here are a few tips to remember if you want to make a land acknowledgment before a class presentation, in a written document, or when hosting an event.
