Intercollegiate Ped Day: Jan. 10 – 11
IPD seeks to promote sharing between college educators, foster intercollegiate professional development, and strengthen collaboration between the English-language CEGEPs.  This year’s theme takes a deeper look at what it means to leverage student success in the English CEGEP system. IPD 2023 will offer a forum to discuss, explore, and investigate the multiple facets of student success.

IPD events will be virtual and will be in the form of workshops, roundtable discussions, panels and even performances! Asynchronous events may also be available.

More info and the schedule will be emailed to faculty in the coming days, and will be available on the Faculty Hub.

Thanks to all who contributed to WGS drive for Food Bank
A huge thank you to all who donated baked and crafted goods, who bought items, and who tabled, for our Financial Aid Food Bank Fundraiser in the lower atrium. A total of $504 was donated the Food Bank that day, with an additional amount of $1,100 donated by generous faculty members, bringing to a grand total of $1,604!

In addition to food, Yvonne Dudley of the Financial Aid Office will purchase toiletries for our students in need. Even though tis the season for giving, it’s good to keep in mind that our Food Bank needs topping up all year long, so kindly give if and when you can. (Johanne Rabat)
