R and Math Summer Camp 2021

The second online edition of our famous R and math summer camp, organized together with Prof. Aaron Erlich, Political Science, Prof. Peter McMahan and Prof. Thomas Soehl. Sociology.

Click here for more information and how to register. Register until July 31 to save your spot!

PUBLIC COMPUTER ACCESS

Everyone at McGill can use our public GIC computers. They are especially equipped for use with geospatial software. At AnyDesk website you can connect to them on a first-comes-first-served basis for up to 6 hours each time. If you do not need geospatial software you can also access a computer in the Library pool. For accessing any computer you need to be connected through McGill’s VPN.

SUSTAINABLE WORKPLACE CERTIFICATION

At the GIC, our goal is to be a workplace that is mindful of its environmental impact and helps to promote sustainable living amongst our staff and patrons. The GIC is proud to have received the Bronze Sustainable Workplace Certification from the McGill Office of Sustainability, and looks forward to continuing to advance our social, economic and environmental sustainability practices.

SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS FUND

The GIC is a proud supporter of the McGill Climate and Sustainability Strategy. One way for students and staff to get involved in campus sustainability initiatives is through participation in the Sustainability Projects Fund. Provided by the McGill Office of Sustainability, the fund provides $1 million annually to support both large and small sustainability projects at McGill, with projects receiving from $300 to over $100,000 depending upon the needs and scope of the endeavour.
