10-minute survey could help you get the tools you need

You might not have noticed, but Capilano University has a new "nook" called the Faculty Commons. Overseeing the area's activities is Laurie Prange-Martin, who is the recently appointed manager of learning and teaching development. She's the one responsible for sending those Monday morning newsletters full of links and tips. In an effort to sharpen her aim, Laurie is asking all faculty to complete a short survey to tell her who you are (reg, non-reg, aux) and what you need.

Dec 6 - remember murdered students -- L’Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal

Excerpt FPSE Newsletter: Twenty-seven years ago, on December 6, 1989, fourteen women were murdered at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. When a man with a gun entered the engineering school, he separated the women from the men, shouting that he was fighting feminism. The women he killed lost their lives to gender-based violence, a hate crime that has come to symbolize the ongoing need to end violence against women and girls.

Get social between agenda items this Tues, Nov 29

Rather than have the CFA's monthly general meeting in December's busy exam period, the executive team thought an end-of-term social-cum-meeting might be more meaningful. To that end, the December meeting will instead be held on November 29, from 11:40 - 12:50 , in LB 322.

In addition to a few business items, there will be finger food, door prizes, music, and some festive puzzles. Mingling? Mandatory. Plan to come and share a few laughs with your faculty colleagues.
