EC Comments on the Policy Concerning the Right to Accommodation for Students with Disabilities

Updated: Aug 19

Though McGill did not seek Union consultation, AGSEM's Executive Committee has reviewed and commented on the new Policy Concerning the Right to Accommodation for Students with Disabilities.


We have a number of concerns--and not just that the policy's name has changed, or that it has suddenly doubled in length. There are serious concerns about how this new policy increases barriers to accessibility, continues to put the onus of enforcing accessibility on disabled students, and does not have concrete steps to support all students (especially disabled grad students and/or disabled grad student workers). Our comments can be found here.


We encourage members to submit their own feedback to the consultation, which is available here: https://www.mcgill.ca/studentlifeandlearning/current-projects/accommodations-policy


Consultation closes on August 13 at 5pm.

Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill

The Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill (AGSEM) was accredited in 1993 to represent Teaching Assistants at McGill, making us the oldest TA Union in the province. Invigilators joined AGSEM in 2010 and Course Lecturers in 2011. Course lecturers have since separated into the McGill Course Lecturers and Instructors Union (MCLIU).
