Subcommittee on Queer People | Joint Board-Senate Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee (EDIC)
The Subcommittee on Queer People is a subcommittee of the EDIC - Joint Board-Senate Committee and it works to ensure equity for queer people at McGill University. The Subcommittee on Queer People is one of six subcommittees that reports directly to the EDIC - Joint Board-Senate Committee, along with the subcommittees on Women, Persons with Disabilities, Family Care, First Peoples, and Racialized and Ethnic Persons. The Subcommittee has a mandate as an advisory body such that it functions to make recommendations to University Senate for changes and improvements which need to be implemented on campus in order to ensure equity for all members of McGill's community.
In this role, the Subcommittee on Queer People addresses systemic issues of representation, inclusion and support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, intersex, asexual, and queer members of the University with respect to academic and non-academic life on campus. The committee is comprised of individuals from all colours of the rainbow including academics (professors and librarians), staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and other members of Montréal's larger academic community.
The Subcommittee on Queer People meets once a month to discuss new ways of advancing equity and improving queer life on campus.
