PLANS FOR ELC FOR 2012-2013

I am pleased to announce that Jill Ross’s appointment in the Faculty will be increased to 80% to allow her to add the management of the ELC to her job duties. Jill will ensure the ELC is open and will oversee a small group of student assistants, including one graduate student leader, who will maintain opening hours in the ELC during the day time, principally, while Bachelor of education courses are in session. Thanks to Jill for taking on these new duties that will allow us to retain many of the important functions of the ELC.
