Community Engagement Day
on and around September 29th, 2016
Community Engagement Day is an annual project by the Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) Office at McGill that aims to celebrate and recognize community engagement efforts connecting McGill to Montreal community groups and organizations. The project is not intended as a one-off event but is meant to serve as an entry point to a broader culture of community engagement at McGill.

Get Involved with CED!
We are currently in the process of planning this year's Community Engagement Day and we're looking for your help! We invite McGill students, faculty, and staff to join the CED team and develop a project with a community organization over the summer. For more information about the role of Project Developers and Facilitators, please click here. To see examples of current projects, please visit our Projects page.
We also invite the McGill community to submit articles, blogs, videos, and other resources on equity-based community engagement, social justice theory and practice, or community organizing in Montreal to our CED Resources Hub!
If you would like to work on a project for CED as a Project Facilitator or Developer, or send in a resource, please contact the CED Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org!

General Accessibility Information
All events will be facilitated in English, with ASL and whisper translation available upon request. Childcare will also be provided upon request. Please make requests to the Program Coordinator at least 3 days before the date of the event.
Although we cannot guarantee that all events and spaces will be scent-free, we ask that participants adhere to our scent-free policy. This means that all attendees should refrain from using any scented products prior to the event or bringing them to the event, including (but not limited to) perfume, cologne, shampoo, conditioner, soap, hairspray or gel, makeup, laundry detergent, fabric softener, or lotion. Attendees should also be aware of any other scents that they carry on them into the event, including the smell of smoke on clothes. Attendees may step out of events at any time so if you take a smoke break, please wait five minutes to "air out" before returning to the event. This scent-free policy is put in place to minimize the risk for people with environmental sensitivities. Scented products can be a cause of health issues, particularly for people with allergies or asthma. For more information on this policy, click here.
McGill University is situated on traditional Kanien'kehá:ka territories.
