Last issue, we asked you to send us your favourite "fun fact" or interesting statistic about UVic. Unusual things — like knowing how many pounds of locally sourced fruits and veggies Food Services prepares in a typical week — are part of what makes the campus distinctive. Send us your tidbit of "telling trivia" and you'll automatically be entered to win a $100 Bookstore gift card, courtesy of the UVic Bookstore and University Communications + Marketing. Contest closes Nov. 4.


Tell us what you think about Campus Checklist

The Campus Checklist is a brief campus news digest delivered biweekly to all UVic faculty and staff via their university-supplied email. Our goal is to strengthen communications between faculty and staff in different areas, support UVic's culture of respect, inclusion and collaboration, build a sense of shared enterprise and improve campus communications.

How are we doing so far? We'd like to hear from you.
