Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI)

For McGill groups and units interested in moving into the RVH

 

December 10, 2015

Dear members of the McGill community:

The Principal’s Task Force on the Academic Vision and Mission of the RVH Site is asking for an expression of interest (EOI) from McGill groups who are interested in moving into the former Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) site.  These groups can be academic, administrative or student organizations. For more information, refer to the EOI application guidelines and form.

The RVH is more than just a solution to our pressing space deficit: It is a unique opportunity to bring McGill into the future. Your bold, imaginative visions will serve as a starting point for discussion and exploration of broader collaborative opportunities.  Your EOI will signal your unit’s or group’s willingness to work with the Task Force to explore that vision—and, if chosen for the RVH, to take a leadership role in developing the initiative.

I would like to remind you that the decision to acquire the RVH site has not yet been made. In parallel with the Task Force’s work, McGill is beginning a feasibility study to examine several factors, including the RVH capacity to meet McGill’s academic and research needs, and the financial viability of the project.

Please submit your EOI form to rvh_vision [at] mcgill.ca by February 12, 2016. We look forward to learning about your vision for the RVH.

Professor Suzanne Fortier
