ARtssci student navigator

The McMaster Student Navigators are a group of recent McMaster grads who are here to provide a first point of contact for current students who need an empathetic listening ear from someone who “gets it,” and who can help facilitate connections to the range of student supports and services at McMaster. Check out the video below to learn more about me and my role as your Student Navigator!

I will be hosting weekly, virtual office hours at the following times (check here for possible updates):

  • Thursdays 1:00-3:00pm
  • Fridays 10:00am-12:00pm

I can also meet outside of these times as needed. For more information, to chat, or to book a virtual meeting, send me an email at

Policy on Academic Integrity

You are expected to exhibit honesty and use ethical behaviour in all aspects of the learning process. Academic credentials you earn are rooted in principles of honesty and academic integrity. Academic dishonesty is to knowingly act or fail to act in a way that results or could result in unearned academic credit or advantage. This behaviour can result in serious consequences—e.g., the grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a notation on the transcript (notation reads: “Grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty”), and/or suspension or expulsion from the university. It is your responsibility to understand what constitutes academic dishonesty. For information on the various types of academic dishonesty, please refer to the Academic Integrity Policy, located at:

The following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty: 1) Plagiarism—e.g., the submission of work that is not one’s own or for which other credit has been obtained. 2) Improper collaboration in group work. 3) Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and examinations.
