Reading week is only a week away, and with this we’re halfway through the Winter term! The Senators have a lot going on as you can see here in their latest biweekly report! You can also find our previous biweekly reports here, or in the Senators’ blog.

A few highlights:

  • In the February 15 Senate Meeting, a Senate Motion submitted by a SSMU Senator, to recognize and promote Black History Month at McGill, was passed.
  • The Senators discussed the University’s Strategic Academic Plan (2017-2022), which was up for open discussion at the February 15 Senate Meeting.
  • The implementation of preferred names at McGill has seen progress in recent weeks, allowing students to use their preferred names in McGill-related contexts if they choose. Find out more about it here.

Minutes of each Senate Caucus meeting is available upon request via email.
