About this Event

Dear FASS colleagues,

Catch up with colleagues and celebrate our collective accomplishments at the 2019 FASS Autumn Reception and Cormack Teaching Symposium on Thursday, October 17, at the Diamond Alumni Centre, Burnaby campus.

Cormack Teaching Symposium, 3:00–5:00 pm

FASS teachers are always ranked highest in SFU student surveys, and our Cormack Teaching Award winners continue to raise the bar. Congratulations to our 2019 winners:

  • Dr. Danielle Murdoch, Criminology
  • Dr. Nicolas Fillion, Philosophy
  • Dr. Panos Pappas, Linguistics
  • Dr. Marianne Ignace, First Nations Language Program and First Nations Studies

The teaching symposium begins with the award winners delivering lightning talks on the theme Why Care? Teaching and the Ethic of Care.

Then we will open a dialogue for all attendees to engage with broad questions around why we value the study of human behaviour. How do we prepare people for responsible living? Why do students and their parents see value in our disciplines?

FASS Autumn Reception, 5:00–7:00 pm

All FASS faculty, graduate students and staff are invited to the Autumn Reception, where I will formally present this year’s Cormack Teaching Awards, Dean’s Medals for Academic Excellence, FASS Employee Achievement Awards, and inductees to the Royal Society of Canada. Appetizers will be served.

Please join me at this event in raising a glass to celebrate our award winners.

Please RSVP

Jane Pulkingham
