Statement in response to U.S. executive order

Jan. 29, 2017


McGill fully supports the concerns expressed by Universities Canada regarding an executive order issued last Friday by U.S. President Donald Trump, which would prevent individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. We are a community that embraces diversity, welcomes the best and the brightest from around the world and celebrates the freedom of our professors and our students to engage with their peers everywhere to study, pursue research and discover the things we need to improve our collective future.

 

Sincerely,

Professor Suzanne Fortier
Principal and Vice-Chancellor
