Jacqueline Murray named Director of First Year Seminars

Posted on Monday, April 18th, 2011

The Department is delighted to congratulate Dr. Jacqueline Murray for her appointment as Director of First Year Seminars for a three year term. Dr. Murray recently received an Honourable Mention at the Central Student Association awards ceremony for "...her commitment to developing and offering unique and exceptional courses for students," so we know her innovative approaches to teaching will lead the FYS program in great directions. The University's popular and innovative First Year Seminars provide new students with interactive classes limited to eighteen, taught by professors from across campus. The topics range from sex to climate change, from science to communication, from animal rights to human rights. (about the program...)

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
