The Student Association of Cognitive Science (SACS) represents undergraduate students enrolled in the Cognitive Science program at McGill University. SACS is here to organize social and academic events for people within the Cognitive Science program at McGill as well as those who are just interested in the field.

Student Association for Sustainability, Science and Society seeks to represent the diversity of students currently enrolled in the Sustainability, Science and Society (SSS) Interfaculty Major program.

ASUS acknowledges that McGill is on the traditional territory of the Indigenous People, Kanien'keha:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-haa-ga). The Kanien'keha:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. This island known as Montreal is known as Tio’tia:ke (Gio-Jaw-Gé) in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and has historically served as a meeting place for other Indigenous nations.

It is not enough to just acknowledge the keepers of this land and McGill’s status as a settler-colonial institution. Silence and inaction will only contribute to erasing the history, the culture, and the realities of Indigenous people. As such, it is important that individuals educate themselves on Indigenous matters and that they apply that knowledge to support Indigenous communities. ASUS should actively resist (neo)-colonialism in the many forms it takes, and in the diversity of forms that resistance can take.
