To be honoured as "distinguished professor emeritus":
It's the new name for the "faculty, staff and retirees annual appeal", which raises money each year for such UW projects as scholarships, bursaries, academic chairs, equipment and library resources. "We felt the need for a new focus," explains Bev Marshman of the applied math department, one of the co-chairs for the Fund. She describes the Keystone name, and the graphic that goes with it, as "something that would symbolize the efforts of faculty, staff and retirees not just for 1997, but for many years to come".
"The keystone is the essential element that holds all the other components of the structure in place and secure," Marshman says. "The committee found this a singularly apt description of the role of faculty and staff, past and present, within our university."
Representatives from each department will help promote the Keystone Fund and are meeting today for an orientation session. Co-chairs along with Marshman are Doug Morton (Davis Centre library), Marg Kerr-Lawson (optometry, retired), and Reg Friesen (chemistry, retired). Watch for the Fund to kick off next month when people across campus will receive their invitation to contribute to their favourite UW projects in 1997-98.
