Are you a student representative interested in making change on campus? Then, you're invited to attend the 2nd Annual Student Academic Summit!
Hosted by SSMU University Affairs, this full day of workshops and networking will provide you with student advocacy tools and information on various issues, including academic rights, students' mental health, study spaces, and many more. There is no cost to attend, and a light lunch will be served by the SSMU's Student-Run Cafeteria. Register here by Friday, October 7 at 5 PM.
In collaboration with Consent McGill, SSMU Equity and McGill Community Engagement Day bring you a panel discussion to examine how sexual violence and power dynamics operate in a university setting.
Join us for a conversation with students, faculty, and staff who will offer their perspectives on the challenges and complexities of addressing and responding to rape culture on campus, with a focus on the abuse of power and authority in relation to sexual violence. For more information, check out the Facebook event. This event is held as a part of #ConsentMcGill Campaign 2016 (September 26-30).

McGill is moving towards an integrated model of psychological services where students will no longer be required to self-select between Mental Health or Counselling Services. This is the first step in the transition towards a single point of entry for all health and wellness units in Student Services.
Join the Health and Wellness Steering Committee for an interactive presentation and Q&A on these changes during the fourth annual Students in Mind conference. Student representatives are welcome to attend this session to learn more about current initiatives and how they can provide feedback during this critical transition phase. This event is a part of Students in Mind Mental Health Conference (October 1-2).
Proposed McGill Policy Against Sexual Violence
Tuesday and Wednesday, September 27-28, 2016
SSMU, PGSS, and MCSS are organizing confidential focus groups, facilitated by trained SACOMSS volunteers, in order to collect feedback on the proposed McGill Policy Against Sexual Violence. A report on these consultations will be compiled for the administration and the wider McGill community.
SSMU is collecting testimony on students' experiences requesting accommodation for mental health, disability, and/or medical reasons. We want to hear your stories! This consultation is the first step in creating a case for an equitable, accessible, and consistent approach to accommodations across McGill. We are still looking for submissions from students in all programs. Click here to provide feedback.
