Congratulations to Bob Harris and Vanessa Auld! On October 28th, 2019 Dr. Auld and Dr. Harris became new members of the UBC Quarter Century club. This means they have been full-time faculty members of the UBC Zoology Department for 25 years.
The UBC Quarter Century Club was established in 1996 by President David Strangway to recognize active full-time faculty members and librarians with 25 years of service. In 2003, the club began recognizing active members who have reached the additional milestone of 35 years of service. This group is known collectively as Tempus Fugit, or “time flies.”
The first members of the Club were those faculty still active at UBC prior to the Club’s establishment in the fall of 1996. Faculty members who had retired prior to fall 1996 were not considered to be eligible. New members are inducted at a special dinner held each fall.
