McGill is a leading global university located in Montreal, Canada. We strive to further internationalization building a strong global community of partners to support academics and research both in Canada and abroad.
Research is by nature international. Researchers around the world work simultaneously in collaboration and competition with each other – a productive tension that leads to breakthroughs and innovations. McGill has a long-held commitment to openness in academic research and international cooperation.
In 2020, McGill’s Provost, Christopher Manfredi, gave McGill’s Global Engagement unit the mandate to draft a global engagement strategy. To expand McGill’s international collaborations, Global Engagement identified priority focus themes, countries, and regions.
Recently, Research and Innovation (RI) interviewed Brian Bauer, Director of Global Engagement, about why the work of the Global Engagement unit is committed to strengthening the internationalization of McGill’s research.

McGill University is on land which long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
