The chair opened the floor to faculty who wished to share their memories of Jim Morrow. Details for his remembrance ceremony will be shared as soon as they are available.


There are travel awards available to researchers interested in attending a PIMS/BIRS workshop. An email will be sent with details on how to apply.

The Diversity Committee is collecting questions and news to share at their upcoming meeting with Maya Smith, the CAS associate dean for equity, justice and inclusion. Please send emails to any of the committee members.

The department’s faculty senator, Farbod Shokrieh, is requesting input from the department on two proposed pieces of legislation being brought to the Faculty Senate pertaining to promotion and retention. An email with details has been shared with the voting faculty.
