Graduate students choose leaders
Association, which earlier announced that Burton Empey of the
philosophy department would be its president for 1996-97, has now
named the rest of its executive. There are four vice-presidents:
- Steve Astels of pure mathematics, VP (internal).
- Marlee MacDonald of accountancy, VP (operations).
- Daniel Piche of pure mathematics, VP (communications).
- Maureen MacDonald of kinesiology, VP (activities).
Co-op department says goodbye
Eight staff members who are leaving the department of co-op education
and career services through the
retirement program are guests of honour at a reception this
afternoon. It starts at 4:30 at the University Club. (Last-minute
RSVPs and information: Edith Hohendorn, ext. 6062.)
Those leaving include three of the department's senior staff, the
"program administrators": Brock Fuller (applied health
sciences and teaching), Randy Klawitter (mathematics and accounting), and
Dick Pullin (science).
Also leaving: Bob Grant, Bob Mateyk, Graham Murphy, Alan Prins, and
Beverlie Robertson. A ninth person from the co-op department, long-time
staffer Marlene Bryan, is also retiring, but isn't part of today's
Partly because of the big hit the retirements are making, the
co-op department is
in the process of reorganizing. Names and titles of the new executive
group in the department are expected to be announced any day.
Unlike most UW departments, however, co-op isn't having to make an
across-the-board budget cut, meaning that replacement of the people who
are leaving should be possible. Co-op is specially exempted from the
7 per cent cut, in the budget that was approved by the senate finance
committee last week.
Looking ahead to June
The seventh annual Matthews Golf Classic is set for Wednesday,
June 26, says a flyer that turned up yesterday. The tournament, aimed at
faculty, staff, retirees and hangers-on, is run as a "scramble", meaning
that all the members of a four-person team tee off at each hole and
the team decides which of the four balls will be played for the
second shot. (In other words, the real duffers don't have to be
terminally embarrassed 18 times.) Play will start at 11:45 at the
Elmira Golf Course, and the day winds up with a 6 p.m. dinner.
Tariff: $35 for the day, $23 for golf only, $15 for dinner only.

provide more information.
