a plug for liberal arts

Hey all,

Here's a chance to get some cred for the Liberal Arts people at the U of C. Nominate someone to the addy below, let's try to draw the spotlight off oil money and our shitty med school for a change.


*Celebrating our 40th *

All Faculty, Staff and Students:

From Dr. Harvey Weingarten, President and Dr. Ron Bond, Provost and
Vice-President (Academic)

As part of the University of Calgary's 40th Anniversary celebrations the
U of C will publish a special insert in the national and local media
recognizing the achievements of 40 of our faculty, staff and students.
Ten each will be selected from the following four groups:

* Faculty and staff who have made the greatest long-term
contribution to the University
* Current faculty with the greatest promise to be leaders of tomorrow
* Outstanding students - the new generation of leaders of tomorrow
* Notable alumni

Nominations are welcome from across campus. Detailed submissions are
welcome but not necessary; a few paragraphs outlining your reasons for
nominating a particular individual would be appreciated. A list of your
nominees will be posted on the web.

Please send your suggestions to: celebrate40@ucalgary.ca

The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2006.
