Subject: Vice-President Simon’s Garden Party
Dear President Allan Rock,
As you know, Vice-President of Resources, Victor Simon ended his term of office on September 30 of this year. Mr. Simon began serving the University of Ottawa as Vice-President beginning in 2004.
When former Vice-President of Academics, Robert Major retired, a garden party was held in his honour on the lawn of Tabaret Hall on May 19, 2009 (link)
Similar public celebrations of university executives have also taken place in other cases — for example, a garden party was held for former President Gilles Patry in 2008. Video here:
Could you please inform the Members of Senate if the administration has initiated plans to celebrate Vice-President Simon’s retirement and, if so, how students will be involved in the celebration planning?
Please provide this information by Wednesday, October 26 in order for Senators to have sufficient time to prepare for any related work to be brought to the Senate at its meeting on November 7, including motion submissions.
