What is the McGill Reporter?

The McGill Reporter is the staff/faculty newspaper for McGill University. It is published twice a month during the academic year by the University Relations Office. The content of the paper is the responsibility of the Reporter editor who is guided by the director of the University Relations Office. The paper covers news, issues, personalities, research, policies and other items that are of general interest to its readers–the faculty, staff and students of McGill University.

Opinion pieces

The McGill Reporter welcomes opinion pieces from faculty, staff and students on issues of general interest to the University community. Such pieces should be discussed with the editor prior to submission. Opinion pieces should be roughly 1,200 words in length.


We accept advertising from both internal and external sources. The McGill Reporter may ocasionally refuse an ad due to a lack of space, or if the ad is inappropriate. Details of our rates are available here.

Letters to the editor

We're always delighted to receive letters which relate to stories that have appeared in the newspaper or to issues that are relevant to the University community. We reserve to right to reject letters which are libelous or grossly offensive. The maximum word length for a letter to the editor is 500 words.

In memoriam

In the event of a death of a member of the McGill community, a friend or colleague may wish to prepare a eulogy for publication. We would ask that such pieces not exceed 500 words. The editor should be consulted prior to submission. Where possible, a professional quality photograph should accompany the article.

Events listings

The McGill Reporter regularly publishes a listing of lectures, seminars, concerts and other events which take place at McGill. Events listings–which are also posted on the University Relations Office's website, URO Central–are free of charge. Deadline for events submissions is one week before Reporter publication and should be sent to the newspaper's editorial clerk, Andrea Donida at events@uro.mcgill.ca.
