"Saying farewell is never easy, especially when your presence adds so much meaning." (Brandon Gaille)

Amidst the influx of fresh faces to the School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures, there are also some major departures of long-term, valued members that SLLLC would like to acknowledge.

The School would like to sincerely thank the following individuals who have recently left the School, for reasons of retirement, educational pursuits and greener pastures: Valere Gagnon (Team Lead/Manager of the French Centre), Robert Murray (Professor, Linguistics), Tamara Schurch (Department Administrator, School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures and former Department of French, Italian and Spanish), Emilia Spoldi (Instructor, Italian) and Ana Val (Instructor, Spanish).

We at the School are very grateful for the time in which we had these amazing individuals working closely with us and wish them the greatest success in all of their future pursuits and new life journeys. Thank you also to Robert Murray, Emilia Spoldi and Ana Val who will remain connected to the School as esteemed Emeriti.

Gracias, danke, grazie, merci, Спасибо, ありがとうございました, 谢谢شكرا !!
