Orillia Report

1.     Orillia is in the process of coming up with a procedure for new course proposals from our faculty members. Until the details are sorted out, please hold any course proposals originating from Orillia's members cross appointed with any of the SSH departments.

2.     Request: Any calendar changes from SSH's departments that may have an impact on
    IS department's programs, please keep us informed. This would be helpful for us to
    keep the integrity of our programs by making necessary changes.

3.     As mentioned (by Sree) at the last SSH Council meeting, calendar change forms on our     specialisations are sent to the respective Deans/Chairs. Sree has obtained verbal/written approval from all the SSH Chairs concerned. We are hoping that the forms will be signed and submitted to the Senate office by the deadline (tomorrow). Thank you to everyone for your support!

4.     Orillia's plans on Research & Innovation week, as mentioned at the last meeting, is
    moving forward. There will be a mini-conference. Details will be shared as and when     available.
