Equity & Diversity Initiatives

Creating an inclusive environment on campus takes active and ongoing effort from all of us. McGill maintains resources to support a more equitable higher learning environment, and holds events throughout the year to educate our community and celebrate our diverse student experiences. 


Equity Policies

McGill's equity policies are designed to foster an environment of respect, trust, and inclusion. The policies, reports, and action plans are available for students to read.

Education is central to inclusion. If you want to learn more about the diverse populations in our community and how to be a good ally to those around you, we have resources available to get you started!


Indigenous Awareness Weeks

McGill's Indigenous Awareness Weeks are an opportunity for the McGill community to learn about and celebrate Indigenous cultures, histories, and societies. With events, special speakers, and the annual Pow Wow, these free events are informative and fun!
