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 UW's 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 on UWinfo under University Secretariat.

Calendars are available

The 1996-97 undergraduate calendar is available today at the registrar's office. 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.

Under a springlike sun

Briefly noted this morning: Finally, the drama department offers a cycle of one-act plays today through Friday in its studio theatre, Humanities room 180. Today at 12:30 p.m., the show is "It's Called the Sugar Plum"; at 8 p.m., "Salt Water Moon" and "Top Girls". Admission is on a pay-what-you-can basis. Just ahead, by the way, is drama's last major production for the term, "The Crucible", running March 27-30.
