a COMMITMENT to YOUR potential. 

The McGill Difference.


McGill has a history of shaping leaders. Nobel Prize winners, Grammy Award winners, Olympic gold medalists and world-renowned researchers—our alumni span the globe and leave McGill's mark in virtually every field, from neuroscience to the arts, from finance to physics and technology.

But the world is changing, and we too must adapt. In this age of disruption, McGill is committed to preparing you not just for the next 10 years, but for the next 50. Our political, environmental, economic and societal future may be undefined, but the McGill experience will position you to lead in increasingly complex times, and to effect positive change. 

In 2015, the University established the McGill Commitment for just this purpose. 


The McGill Commitment ensures that the University will foster students' Self-Development, while offering Innovative Academics and Leading Research on an International Campus.
