Hello Biology folks,
Because I am leaving for sabbatical, this blog post marks the end of my tenure as chair of the Biology Outreach Team. I want to thank the team (currently: Trevor Charles, Heidi Swanson, Vivian Dayeh, Rebecca Rooney, Mark Servos, Sue Whyte, Maya D’Alessio, Heather Neufeld) for their dedication to telling our Department’s story in so many ways. The activities we have helped organize, facilitate, and promote include public lectures, Department branding, open houses, twitter (@WaterlooBio), newsletter, blog (you’re here!), updating our building space, and more.
And, as I say goodbye, I am glad to report that our Department Photo Boards have been updated (see above). It is such a relief to have this yearly-ish labour of love behind us. Hopefully future updates will be smooth and timely with Creative Services offering their services to us without charge under their new model.
Importantly, Heidi Swanson will be taking the reigns of the Outreach Team from January onwards. Thanks Heidi!
Heading into 2015, please help the Outreach Team continue to do their job well by letting anyone on the team know when awards are won, key article are published, or other noteworthy stories arise from our day-to-day activities.
Over and out, for now.
