Congratulations to Professor James Skidmore, faculty member in Germanic and Slavic Studies and director of the Waterloo Centre for German Studies, for winning a national award for innovative teaching. He received the Innovate German Award at the 2018 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
On July 16 Arts welcomes the incoming class of 2018 to Arts 101 Day, an important step in helping new students prepare for the transition to university this fall. 101 Days are hosted by each faculty in partnership with the Student Success Office inviting all new students along with their families to campus.
Members of the Faculty of Arts gathered on April 25 in the Hagey Hall Hub, along with University leaders, to celebrate the 2018 Arts Awards for Excellence in Service, Teaching, and Research. The annual event - known as Celebration of Arts - also recognizes the many accomplishments of members of the Faculty, from SSHRC grants to Killam fellowships to distinguished teaching.
Since his first day in September 1968, it’s estimated that Professor and Distinguished Teacher John North has taught more than 20,000 students. And while that day stretches back 50+ years, North still remembers it vividly.
