Taking courses at Laurier
A new cross-registration agreement has been developed between UW and
Wilfrid Laurier University,
says Jim Boniface of the UW
registrar's office. Here's a summary of it:
Commencing the term beginning September 1995, full-time and part-time
students at UW and WLU may request to enrol in on-campus courses at the
"other" institution via the cross-registration process. Part-time students
will no longer be required to take these courses on a Letter of Permission
except as indicated in item 2 below.
Part-time students wishing to enrol at the "other" institution in a course
Education (Correspondence) at UW or Telecollege at WLU must continue
to follow the Letter of Permission procedure.
A new Cross-Registration form is being developed. Please note that the
form is not required for students in integrated programs or options
whose courses are routinely available on their timetable and
listed in pre-registration materials.
Service award to staff member
The dean of environmental studies has announced that Joanne Holzinger
of the dean's office has been awarded the Distinguished Service Award
for 1995 in ES. Says dean Jeanne Kay: "Joanne's normally heavy
responsibilities for budget, facilities, and personnel matters in the
Faculty have been augmented by voluntary service on several demanding
committees. Most of all, Joanne is appreciated in the Faculty for her
unfailing expertise, serenity and helpfulness towards all who work
with her." The award is given in alternate years to a staff member and
a faculty member, and "carries a $1,000 cheque or professional
development account funded by unrestricted donations to the Faculty".
The dean said there will be a reception next fall to honour Holzinger
and other award winners in the ES faculty.
