TSC Bulletin - Helpdesk Hours of Operation

In an effort to better serve the University community during peak hours, the Technology Service Centre will be adjusting the Helpdesk hours to a continual 9:00 am - 5:00 pm schedule Mondays to Fridays.

This should better serve students, staff and instructors and improve access to the Helpdesk resources.

For additional information, please contact Mason Holroyd, Manager Server, Desktop & Client Services at 807-343-8102 or managersdc.tsc@lakeheadu.ca.

Graduating Students: Apply for Voices From the Class 2020

Convocation is a time to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our students. Once again this year, we are inviting graduating students to apply to be the Voice from the Class of 2020.

One student speaker will be selected for each of the four Convocation ceremonies. This is a great opportunity for students to take part in the ceremony and share their Lakehead experiences with their classmates, and provide the student voice to the proceedings.

We want to hear from you! Are you interested in being the Voice from the Class of 2020?

The application and more information can be found here.


Nominations Are Now Open for the 2020 Indigenous Partnership Research Award

The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives would like to celebrate the partnerships between Lakehead University researchers and Indigenous communities and organizations by offering an annual award for Indigenous Partnership Research.

In the past, research has often been on Indigenous people(s), rather than with Indigenous people(s). Lakehead University believes that research partnerships that benefit both the researcher(s) and the Indigenous community are most likely to lead to more productive relationships with, and improved conditions for, Indigenous communities.

The Lakehead University Indigenous Partnership Research Award will be jointly awarded to a Lakehead University researcher or research team and a representative from their Indigenous partner(s), be it an individual, community or organization. The award consists of a certificate and a $500 cheque, one for researchers and one for the Indigenous partner.

Please see lakeheadu.ca/indigenous/ai-tb/call-for-nominations for more information and nomination form. Nominations are due Jan. 31, 2020.

The new MobileSafety app includes emergency contacts, a safety toolbox, and other important resources available at the touch of a button.

The safety toolbox includes a flashlight, a loud alarm, and the ability to send security a photo. AppArmor custom mobile safety apps improve emergency response in a crisis and make campus security resources more accessible.
