SKILLSETS is stewarded by Teaching and Learning Services. Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and Student Services are the primary collaborators, continually advising on SKILLSETS programming, and making a variety of other contributions to all aspects of the SKILLSETS program, from delivery of workshops and special events, to developing connections with alumni and industry partners. Together, we develop and promote interdisciplinary professional development offerings to all graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Discover SKILLS21, the undergraduate skills program.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
Did you know that as a McGill student, your participation in many activities, such as training workshops and volunteering are tracked on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR)? Having your co-curricular activities listed in one document can help you revise your CV or cover letter, prepare for interviews, or explore career options. Learn how to access and leverage this important document through myInvolvement, and make your training count!
