Campus Briefs

The Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) was recently awarded the Merchant Capital Group Design Award for best project Web site in 2003. The award was presented by the Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) to CUAG and Patrick Côté, an Ottawa freelance designer who re-designed CUAG’s Web site in honour of its 10th anniversary. Acclaimed Canadian poet Di Brandt presented Côté with the award for his design of the on-line component of Adrian Göllner’s ModernU exhibition, which was displayed on the Carleton campus this past fall.

Campus Safety Shift Manager Alan Parker was recently presented with the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) Award of Valour at the IACLEA conference hosted by Carleton in June. This was the first time the award has been presented to a staff member at a Canadian university. Parker was nominated for his courageous efforts in a confrontation on campus in November 2002. Director of University Safety, Len Boudreault nominated Parker for his quick reflexes and calm thinking in a threatening emergency situation. Not only did Parker resolve a potentially dangerous situation, he also protected his colleague Justine Cain, who was also present. “Even when grossly out-numbered, Parker did not hesitate for a moment to put his life in danger to protect the life of the student or his fellow officer, Cain,” says Boudreault.
