Dates of existence



In 1954, President W.P. Thompson formed an ad hoc committee to coordinate the various requests from high schools for visitors from the University. A year later a committee on High School Visits was established to recruit and counsel prospective students. In 1959 three subcommittees were formed: University Nights, Campus Tours, and Teacher's Institutes. The High School Liaison office was created in 1974, and assumed responsibility for the production of brochures, handbooks and audio-visual material, the biannual newsletter "Its Your University", career days, high school summer camp tours (1974-1992), and the coordination of university contact with high schools throughout the province. In 1992/1993, the High School Liaison Office was placed under the jurisdiction of the Registrar's Office. The following have served as department head: C.A. Wheaton (1974-1976); S. Meeklal (1976-1980); R. Niekamp (1980-1982); M. Greenshields (1982-1984); B. Cram (1985-1988); B. Loewin (1988-1992); T. Gasior (1992-1994); K. McInnes (1994- ).
