Seeking new dean for ES
Today's Gazette publishes (page 2) an announcement that the nominating
process is under way for the position of dean of environmental studies.
The announcement makes clear, without quite saying so, that the
present dean, Jeanne Kay, won't be reappointed when her term ends
June 30, 1997.
Kay wrote to her colleagues in environmental studies on January 16
to say that she had decided not to seek a new term:
I have asked [the chair of the nominating committee] to move
directly to the stage of seeking a new person for the position,
in the belief that there will be highly qualified candidates
within the Faculty. . . . I continue to enjoy many, many aspects
of administrative and academic life in the Faculty of Environmental
Studies. I anticipate working with a high level of effort and
commitment during the next 18 months, particularly to get the
Faculty through the current budget reductions in a strong
position. I look forward to effecting a smooth and supportive
transition for the next Dean of the Faculty and to serving FES
as a regular faculty member.
Kay is a tenured professor in geography.
As required by
Policy 45, advertisements for the position are being published
across Canada. The text of the ad also appears in today's Gazette,
and can be found
under University Secretariat.
Calendars are available
The 1996-97 undergraduate calendar is available today at the
Each undergraduate student is entitled to one calendar -- your
WatCard will be "swiped" when you get yours, and if you need
another one in the next twelve months, you'll have to buy it from
the bookstore, which is also where outsiders are supposed to get
any UW calendars they want. It's the first time the calendar has
been offered for sale.
The 1996-97 calendar is also available on-line
on UWinfo --
look under "Calendars, courses, exams". And by the way, the
winter term exam schedule is finally available on UWinfo.
