Message from the President October 2008 As the excitement of September settles into the regular pace and schedule of the academic
 

Summary: Message from the President October 2008
As the excitement of September settles into the regular pace and schedule of the academic
year, we may now have time to look up and see more clearly the community around us. Our
students notice more closely other students and their professors, and get to know more
about each other through conversation in the classroom, labs and hallways. Professors are
also learning more about their students, challenging them to think in new and different
ways. Our faculty share and discover knowledge and ideas with new and returning
colleagues in their own and other disciplines. Many of our paths cross in the daily operations
and administration of the University so well managed by the hundreds of employees who
work here.
With close to 12,000 students, over 50,000 alumni and 1,430 faculty and staff, the
University of Regina is in itself a community that resides within a greater community. Off
campus, we meet each other in curling clubs or walking in the park, at Rams, Cougars, Pats
and Riders games, in coffee shops and grocery stores, at churches and art galleries, and at
our children's schools and activities.
Although we call ourselves a community, it is important that we also view ourselves as a
community an inclusive group of people who connect with and support each other. This
has to be a conscious effort, because it is easy to become isolated, focus on our own area
and lose a sense of the connections we have around us.
Community is the theme for my October 18 installation, whic h takes place as part of Fall
