Of Note

Honorary Degree Nominations

Honorary degree nominations are being sought for convocation ceremonies of the 2000-2001 academic year.

All members of the Concordia University community (faculty, students, staff and alumni) are invited to submit nominations. Please note that current members of the faculty, the administration or the Board of Governors are not eligible to receive honorary degrees. Every nomination must include a detailed curriculum vitae and a succinct statement explaining (i) why the nominator thinks the candidate is worthy of the honour, and (ii) what makes the candidate an appropriate honorand for Concordia University. The nomination deadline for convocation ceremonies to be held in the upcoming academic year is 15 April 2000.

Nomination forms, as well as the criteria used in selecting honorands, are available from Huguette Albert in the Office of the Registrar, S-LB-700 (phone 848-2622). Completed forms should be submitted to her attention as Secretary of the Graduation Ceremonies Committee. If the nominee is clearly faculty-specific, please send a copy of the form to the Assistant of the Dean in the appropriate Faculty.

Professor Michael Longford and students Natasha Vairo and Kajin Goh stretch out on a mattress to leaf through their handiwork.

A. Ross Seaman Awards

Seaman Awards

The annual A. Ross Seaman Awards were presented March 15 at Dawson College to students distinguished for their academic achievement, their leadership and participation in extra-curricular activities, and their volunteer work in the community.

Seen above are three prize-winners from Concordia. From left to right are Siobhan McSharry and Emily Csukly, co-winners of the Applied Human Sciences Therapeutic Recreation Award, and Marie-Claude Du Cap, winner of the AHSC Leisure Sciences Award; they won $200 each. Missing from the photo is Selena Merkouris, who was given the AHSC Human Relations Award, valued at $500.




Visitors to an art show by Fine Arts students are looking at Fingerhood(at left) and Earhood (behind, at right), two sculptures by Kathleen Sellars.

Thanks to an initiative by Delta Montreal, a large downtown hotel, 20 Fine Arts students are having their work seen by hundreds, even thousands of people, some of whom might even offer to buy. Louise Lapointe, an employee of the hotel, approached the Faculty to suggest an art show, and in six weeks, student curators Julie Keller and Janet Belloto had not only a display in the lobby and mezzanine, but a colourful catalogue, as well. As Mme Lapointe said at the vernissage, many hotels in Europe and some in the U.S. are displaying the work of local artists as a link with the community that is to everyone's advantage. The show continues at 475 President Kennedy Ave., near McGill College, until the end of April.
