New vice-president expected

Members of UW's senate have been called for a special, confidential meeting tonight (7:30 p.m., Needles Hall 3001). What's on the agenda is a report from the nominating committee for vice-president (university research), presumably in the form of a proposed name. If there's a nominee and the senate approves, the name will then go to tomorrow's regular meeting of the UW board of governors for final approval.

It'll be the first person at UW to hold that particular title. Research has until now been the province of a " dean of research", with Gary Waller of the psychology department currently being the interim dean.

With the new appointment, UW will have three vice-presidents. There are already the vice-president (academic) and provost, Jim Kalbfleisch, and the vice-president (university development), Roger Downer.

Presbyterians meet at UW

The 121st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada is meeting at UW today through Friday. It's the annual meeting of the national governing body for one of Canada's major Protestant churches. The agenda (with the general title Unleashing the Laity) is expected to be a mixture of administrative matters and church policy positions. Sederunts, or business meetings, are being held in the Theatre of the Arts, most mornings and afternoons (and Tuesday and Thursday evenings). Delegates are staying in Village 1.

An unrelated ecclesiastical note: Westminster United Church, a local congregation of the United Church of Canada, is holding its Sunday morning worship at St. Paul's United College this summer, while its own property becomes a building site. Westminster services begin at 10 a.m. each Sunday at Wesley Chapel, St. Paul's. Information: 725-3164.

Environment week begins

The theme is "Alternative Forms of Transportation", as the office of student issues of the Federation of Students sponsors Environment Week. Among the events scheduled:
