Message from Fabrice Labeau

It was encouraging to see the high level of engagement at last week’s faculty and staff Town Hall, where we discussed the planning for safely resuming on-campus activity this fall. With more than half of our student community expected to be in the Montreal area, interpersonal interaction will play an important part in re-establishing a vibrant campus experience.

Message from Fabrice Labeau, Deputy Provost

As Provost Manfredi and Vice-Principal Beauchamp wrote to you last week, our society is now living in a period of learning to co-exist with COVID-19. The success of our ongoing, multi-phase research ramp-up is proof positive that, together, well-considered institutional directives and conscientious individual efforts can result in safely re-opening our physical spaces. We will now take significant steps in the weeks to come to increase the resumption of all types of activities across our campuses.

From its very beginning in March, the goal of the COVID-19 lockdown was to “flatten the curve” in order to lessen the strain on critical health care services. Throughout this period, the University has been proactive in developing plans to prioritize the health and safety of the community, as well as to ensure the successful continuity of our academic mission.

Message from Fabrice Labeau, Deputy Provost

The COVID-19 lockdown has changed so much about McGill life. Spring Convocation, for one, usually draws thousands of smiling faces to our campuses. In-person events may be cancelled, but the pride we all feel in the Class of 2020 is stronger than ever. While we know there’s no replacement for crossing the stage, McGill University will celebrate our graduates’ achievements in a very special way. Tomorrow and Friday, we will mark this once-in-a lifetime occasion with a series of virtual Convocation ceremonies — and everyone is invited to join the celebrations online. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to our 2020 graduates, and to thank everyone who has worked so hard to make this unprecedented celebration happen.

Our campuses usually become much quieter during summer but, of course, there is nothing “usual” about the year we are having. Indeed, even though the vast majority of us will continue to work remotely for the foreseeable future, our campuses are becoming increasingly livelier, relatively speaking. Here are this week’s updates on progress and developments relating to McGill’s continued operations during the COVID-19 lockdown.
