Initiatives

Working Group on Online Programs

McGill University’s Strategic Academic Plan, implemented in 2017, includes an explicit commitment “to accelerate the development and delivery of online degree programs and professional masters programs, with the goal of implementing five online programs in five years.”

The Working Group on Online Programs is tasked with recommending a strategy for achieving this goal and means to ensure that McGill develops a sustainable framework for a new online presence and the further incorporation of digital tools (where desirable) into existing programs.

Working Group on Principles of Commemoration and Renaming

The Working Group on Principles of Commemoration and Renaming is tasked with undertaking an examination of McGill’s relationship (past and current) with underrepresented groups, in the context of a broad-reaching reflection of our institutional history, with a view to recommending a set of principles by which the University may be guided in its decision-making with respect to any future commemorative or renaming initiative.
