The 10 uni­ver­si­ties in Greater Mon­tréal — UQAM, École de tech­nolo­gie supérieure, École nationale d’administration publique, École Poly­tech­nique de Mon­tréal, HEC, Insti­tut nation­al de la recher­ché sci­en­tifique, Con­cor­dia Uni­ver­si­ty, Uni­ver­sité de Mon­tréal, Uni­ver­sité de Sher­brooke (Cam­pus Longueuil) and McGill Uni­ver­sity – came togeth­er to launch the 10 Togeth­er” campaign.

The cam­paign aims to high­light the impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion of uni­ver­si­ties to the dai­ly lives of Mon­treal­ers and cel­e­brate the great brains that make Mon­tréal the best uni­ver­si­ty city in Amer­i­ca, as found by the recent QS Best Stu­dent Cities rat­ings. The 10 uni­ver­si­ty cen­tres of the metrop­o­lis con­tribute to the strength of sec­tors such as inno­va­tion, research and cul­ture, among oth­ers. Through the knowl­edge they trans­mit, these 10 insti­tu­tions of high­er learn­ing enrich our com­mu­ni­ty and cre­ate an intel­li­gent, strong and live­ly city,” to quote the campaign’s website.

The cam­paign high­lights the inno­va­tions of researchers and grad­u­ates of the 10 Mon­tréal schools. One of these inno­va­tions is the Cité-ID Liv­ing Lab in Urban Resilience Gov­er­nance, the brain­child of Marie-Chris­tine Ther­rien, Pro­fes­sor at the École nationale d’administration publique.
