Time: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Venue: Campus Commons

Wear an Orange Shirt to show your support! Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and has become an annual opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools.

CAUT’s Fair Employment Week: October 24-28

caut-few-2016Today, about one third of all academic staff in post-secondary institutions in Canada struggle to find decent work. They are hired on a per course or limited-term basis. They are denied the opportunity to participate in all aspects of academic work — teaching, research and service to the community. They can’t fully exercise their academic freedom because of the possibility of not being renewed. Many are trained to do research, find new ideas and innovate, but are prohibited to do so. Many are providing services to the community, for free!

They are often poorly paid, have little or no benefits, no job security, and no academic freedom. The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) opposes the casualization of academic work and advocates for the full employment and the fair treatment of all academic staff regardless of their appointment status.

Let’s make it fair!

Events: TBA

 

Arts Colloquium Series, Monica Sanchez: November 3rd

Faculty member Monica Sanchez presents as part of the Arts Colloquium Series fall lineup. Topic TBA.
