To tackle global challenges, we need to bring people together based on the problems they are working on, and not solely the disciplines they specialize in. To do so, McGill University is revitalizing a portion of the former site of the Royal Victoria Hospital to create a state-of-the-art research, teaching, and learning hub dedicated to Sustainability Systems and Public Policy.

The New Vic Project will be a catalyst for rethinking and reimagining the university model — dissolving boundaries between disciplines, communities and institutions — to focus on shared goals benefiting all of humanity.

Our vision for the New Vic

Unite researchers, students and partners to tackle global sustainability challenges.

Innovative spaces

Designed for connection, exchange and to be open to the community.

McGill University is on land which has long served and continues to serve as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence and contribution mark this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
