Fall Faculty Seminar~Welcoming Back Staff and Faculty

The faculty and staff came together for their annual fall seminar. This year the focus was on wellness and working together in teams. After coffee and muffins, the day began with a welcome by Dean Jennifer Tupper, in which successes and achievements from the past year were highlighted, and the Dead Balloon recipients were recognized for completing their Phds while members of our faculty (a time-honoured tradition in our faculty). Then, six teams were dispersed to run (or walk) an “Amazing Race,” which guided participants across campus to places such as First Nations University, RPIRG, Registration, Student Success Centre, Students Union, an intermedia lab, a Fafard sculpture and so on. Each team created iMovies to show the whole group the amazing aspects of the campus that they found during their race. After lunch, the group headed to the Kinesiology Building to participate in a variety of group fitness exercises such as Nordic walking, yoga, and zoomba. Later, everyone came together for a reception. The fall seminar helps build a collegial culture of collaboration and teamwork as the faculty and staff anticipate the arrival of students on campus next week for their fall term.
