Retired faculty members keep hand in instruction as writing advisors

Although the students who use their services come from all different academic disciplines, varying countries and cultures, and range from first-year undergraduates to doctoral candidates, they generally share one challenge, say the volunteers of the Writing Advisor program: grammar.

“Sometimes the first draft of their papers won’t contain any articles at all,” says Kai Hildebrandt, one of the professors emeriti who have been helping students with their essays. “In fairness, some of their native languages don’t have articles like English does.”

Student Affairs staff put their culinary skills to work

A team from the UWindsor student affairs office gave a new meaning to serving students this week—cooking and serving dinner to 80 hungry patrons at Assumption University on Monday.

Brooke White, executive director of student affairs;  Mike Houston, director of international affairs; Diane Rawlings, head of residence services; Karen Benzinger, acting director of the Educational Development Centre; and transition services intern Laura Prada prepared a typically Canadian dinner of meat loaf, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots, salad, rolls and a dessert of cake.

Faculty retirees sought for student support initiatives

Student and International Affairs is seeking retired faculty who are interested in volunteering to assist with student support initiatives on campus, particularly learning support.

“We are looking for retirees from all faculties, including those who have experience working with students at the graduate level,” says Brooke White, executive director of student affairs. “Please consider sharing your vast expertise with students who would benefit tremendously from this experience!”
