It includes the president, two vice-presidents, seven deans, the president of St. Jerome's College, the associate provost (academic and student affairs), the university librarian, the director of teaching resources, and the medical director of health services, plus 34 faculty members. The list doesn't have some names that might be expected, because, for example, vice-president Roger Downer left UW part way through last year, while other new senior officials were appointed midway through the year.
Heading the list is university president James Downey, whose salary is listed at $186,667, plus $5,403 in reportable benefits. Other top salaries, in order, with figures rounded to the nearest dollar:
Says the news bureau in a statement issued this morning: "With some 2,700 staff and faculty and 16,353 full-time and 5,550 part-time students, the University of Waterloo is the fourth biggest university in Ontario and the largest employer in Waterloo Region. It has annual operating expenditures of about $270 million."
Says Meredith McGinnis in UW's development office: "Some existing endowed awards and bursaries are eligible for the government matching, and new OSOTF bursaries have been established in each of the faculties and colleges. This is an exceptional opportunity to double the impact of your donation!" For more information she can be reached at ext. 2562.
This weekend, after the ACU council meeting, Downey will take part, along with British and Australian university leaders, in a workshop designed to give the vice-chancellors of South African universities the benefit of experience in dealing with rapid changes in government funding.
The main topics: "Using Students' Co-op Work Experiences in Your Course", 9 a.m.; "Marking Groupwork", 10:30; "Public Speaking in the Classroom", 1:00; "Creating Diagrams on the Blackboard", 2:30.
Teachers can attend any or all of the sessions, which will be held in Math and Computer room 4058, but should register ahead of time with teaching resources ("the TRACE office") at ext. 3132, e-mail trace@watserv1.
The English Language Proficiency Examination will be given April 10 (that's Thursday next week), at 7 p.m. in the Physical Activities Complex. All students who have not fulfilled their faculty's English language requirement should plan to write the exam on that evening.
The mature student services office is giving its non-credit starter course, "Preparing for University", on Wednesday evenings April 16 through May 21. Course participants "will get an opportunity to brush up their study skills, find their way around the library, learn the finer points of writing an essay, learn how to prepare for examinations and how to use UW's computing facilities. Concerns such as juggling studies with home, family and career, finding the ideal course load, and choosing the right program will also be discussed." The course costs $50. More information: ext. 2429.
The hours at UW's libraries are longer, from now through the end of exams. From March 27 through April 23, the Dana Porter Library will be open Monday to Thursday 8 a.m. to midnight; Friday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to midnight.
