Dear Members of the McGill Community, I write to inform you that Ms. Sylvia Franke, McGill’s Chief Information Officer (CIO), has decided to leave the University effective 31 December 2009 in order to pursue new opportunities in higher education administration.
Around noon on Tuesday, August 11, a gas main was inadvertently ruptured in the course of construction work near the corner of University and Sherbrooke Streets. The pipe was sealed within an hour and people were shortly thereafter allowed to proceed back into the affected buildings. The emergency situation is over.
What is McGill doing about the flu and how it might affect the University? As concern spreads about the potential effect the H1N1 flu pandemic might have on University operations now and in the fall, it is important to outline some of the steps McGill is taking to minimize disruption to people and operations.
