EduCativ Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 McGill University is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the world's leading universities. With students coming to McGill from some 150 countries, our student body is the most internationally diverse of any research-intensive university in the country. McGill is recognized around the world for the excellence of its teaching and research programs. Ernest Rutherford's Nobel Prize-winning research on the nature of radioactivity was conducted at McGill, part of a long tradition of innovation on our campuses that includes the invention of the artificial blood cell and Plexiglas. Today our professors are building the new field of epigenetics, developing alternative energy sources from crop plants, and driving human achievement in every field imaginable. In addition to a stellar faculty, McGill is known for attracting the brightest students from across Canada, the United States, and around the world. McGill students have the highest average entering grades in Canada. Our commitment to fostering the very best has helped our students win more national and international awards on average than their peers at any other Canadian university. The prestigious Rhodes Scholarship has gone to a nation-leading 144 McGill students. Our university is home to an exceptional collection of students, faculty, and staff, and counts itself among the finest research-intensive universities in the world. McGill's Senior Administration and governing bodies – the Board of Governors and Senate – provide strategic guidance and oversight, ensuring accountability through formal decision-making and reporting.
