Live December 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched us all. Some have been marked by profound loss. Many more are struggling with stress and hardship, or are concerned for people in their lives who are struggling. This has been challenging for everyone.
The University has since been able to continue to function safely and effectively because of the tireless collective efforts of our entire community, and the thoughtful, measured guidance of the Emergency Operations Centre and the Academic Planning Executive Committee.
We continue to face immediate, serious challenges, with Montreal remaining a red zone. Fall 2021 will still not look like Fall 2019—but, importantly, nor will it look like Fall 2020.

This work is more important now than ever before.

This has been apparent in recent events within Canadian institutions of higher education, which reveal a tension between academic freedom on one hand, and equity and inclusiveness on the other.
