The SSMU University Affairs portfolio conducts and facilitates student-led research on topics that are pertinent to McGill University and SSMU governance. Under the Academic Research Commissioner, students are hired to conduct research on various topics that would facilitate advocacy done by the SSMU. Students, especially those who are involved in student governance, are also able to propose research topics that they think are relevant by filling out a research request form (available soon) or emailing the Academic Research Commissioner. Below are some of the reports produced by SSMU in the past.
