Université of Montréal

Jean Charest, Vice-Rector – Human Resources and Planning

“Education is key to accepting diversity and fighting prejudice, and it is in Université de Montréal’s DNA to contribute to this open-mindedness among our students. As an employer, we must embody and recognize the diversity that defines not only the Montreal region, but today’s world.”

Jean Charest, Vice-Rector – Human Resources and Planning
