The McGill Project

The mission of the McGill Project is to foster free thought, creative expression, and inclusive community.

The McGill Project makes its home of McGill Hall a place with a strong sense of community and acceptance. McGill Project members consider themselves part of an ongoing campus tradition of free expression and discovery. The McGill Project provides a home for students with a wide variety of majors and interests; this diversity is represented during yearly programs and activities. In the fall, Project members select a theme for the Annual Spring Showcase, which, for the past few years, has been a mixed-media fair for the campus and surrounding community. At the showcase, project members present visual art, poetry, performance art, and other creative exhibits. Participants also attend McGill Hours a weekly program of the McGill Project in which Vanderbilt professors or Nashville community activists visit the Project and share about more controversial or provocative topics on which the speakers may not have an opportunity to educate students in the classroom. Vanderbilt students interested in joining the Project and living in McGill Hall can complete the application process to become a Satellite McGillite. The Satellite McGillite roster serves as the de facto waiting list to live in McGill Hall. For questions, contact Abbey Stephens (VP for Campus Outreach).
