This campus-wide consultation was informed by a review lead team with representatives from offices and services at the university who have responsibility for the administration of the Policies or have accountabilities within the Policies. Student, faculty and staff groups were also engaged in the design and development of the survey and focus groups.

“I encourage all McMaster community members to participate in this feedback process and lend their valuable voices to the review of these policies,” says Sonia Anand, acting associate vice-president, Equity and Inclusion. “This is more than a routine policy review. It is a direct way to ensure your perspectives are heard.”

The results of the survey and focus groups will be synthesized and will inform policy revisions to be presented to the Senate and Board for approval.
