Board of governors meets today

The board of governors, UW's top governing body, holds its summer meeting starting at 3:30 today in Needles Hall room 3001. The meeting is open to the public, and offers an opportunity to hear the president and provost give their quarterly reports on what's been happening at the university.

On the agenda:

Conflicts in the workplace

The Employee Assistance Program sponsors a noon-hour session today entitled "Resolving Workplace Conflict and Is There a Role for Mediation?" The speaker is Matt Erickson, UW's coordinator of ethical behaviour and human rights. The meeting runs from 12 noon to 1p.m. in Math and Computer room 5158. "Bring your lunch," says the invitation. "Fruit juice will be provided."

Utility shutoffs scheduled

Electrical power, heating, cooling and ventilation will be turned off from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight in Chemistry 2 building. "Computer equipment should be shut down in an orderly fashion.")

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning will be turned off for a number of rooms on the first and second floors of the Math and Computer building from 6 to 9 a.m. tomorrow and Thursday.

Celebration of the earth

That's the theme for an Environment Week event tonight, sponsored by the Womyn's Centre and being held in Campus Centre room 238 starting at 7 p.m. "If you are intrigued by the notion of celebration and circles," says an announcement, you should come: "everyone is welcome."

Tomorrow, there's a "bike workshop and potluck" from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Environmental Studies courtyard.

It's not officially part of Environment Week, but it fits well with the Week's theme of "alternative forms of transportation": the Midnight Sun solar car is to be unveiled tomorrow, at 1:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Raytheon Canada, 400 Phillip Street. The UW-built car will be participating in the Sunrayce across the United States in a few weeks.
