Inaugural Mentors

As our first cohort of McCall MacBain Scholars begin their studies, we are proud to announce the mentors who will accompany them on their journey.

Meaningful connections are at the heart of the McCall MacBain Scholar experience. Our mentors share their knowledge, experience, and networks to assist scholars as they make the most of their studies at McGill and determine next steps after their degree.
