The Assessors

You can reach out to any Assessor to discuss your situation in confidence

What is an Assessor?

Assessors are members of the University community who investigate Complaints received under McGill's Policy on Harassment and Discrimination Prohibited by Law. Half of the Assessors are members of academic staff and half are members of administrative and support staff.

How are Assessors selected and how long do they serve?

Assessors are chosen from a broad selection of McGill faculties and units to reflect the diversity of our community. The Provost consults with university-level student associations, staff associations and unions to select Assessors, whose appointment is then approved by Senate. Assessors report directly to the Provost and serve three-year terms.

Should I contact the Senior Equity and Inclusion Advisor (SEIA) or an Assessor to discuss my case?

Typically, the SEIA is the first point of contact for inquiries and assigns Complaints to the Assessors. However, you may also contact an Assessor directly if you feel more comfortable discussing your situation with that person.
