Subcommittee on Queer People | Joint Board-Senate Committee on Equity
The Subcommittee on Queer People is a subcommittee of the Joint Board-Senate Committee on Equity (JBSCE) and is committed to ensuring equity for queer people at McGill University. As such, the Subcommittee on addresses issues of representation, inclusion and support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirited, 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 and includes academics (professors and librarians), staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and members of Montréal's larger academic community.
The Subcommittee on Queer People is one of six subcommittees that reports directly to the JBSCE, along with the subcommittees on Aboriginals, Disability, Race, Women, and Family. The Subcommittee has a mandate as an advisory body such that it functions to make recommendations to Senate for changes and improvements which need to be implemented on campus in order to ensure equity for all members of McGill's community.
The Subcommittee on Queer People meets once a month to discuss new ways of advancing equity and improving queer life on campus.
