Below we have compiled a list of conversations happening on campus. The intention is not for this to be a comprehensive list, but instead to serve as a way to provide context for some of the social issues that relate to safety and equity present within the McGill community. The entries are presented alphabetically, not in order of importance or priority. This list was compiled through consultations with many McGill clubs and services, as well as through information and opinions found in the McGill student-run newspapers and the students themselves. While we find this information important, as it represents actual concerns expressed by students, we also recognize that amazing work is being done by students, staff, faculty, and administration on campus already in response to these issues. We hope that this section will be a reference not only students, but also for professors and members of the administration who want to look at McGill from a student’s perspective. After a short description of each topic, we have included some resources born of this work. Head to our empower section if any of these topics inspire you to create a more equitable McGill culture.
It is important to note that all these conversations are complex issues, the views and information presented do not reflect necessarily reflect the views and opinions of all groups on campus.
