The staff who joined UKSRO are Viv Jump from the Faculty of Arts, Irene Green and Chris McEneaney from the Faculty of Engineering, Sue Heyes and Martin Robinson from the Faculty of Science, and Ann Hipkin and Sarah Davies from the Faculty of SES. Together with Julie Wilson, Admissions Co-ordinator, they will form a new Admissions Team within UKSRO, headed by Deputy Director Gaynor Glover. For the remainder of the 2005-06 academic year, the team will continue to operate the procedures that are already in place. Although the staff who are joining UKSRO will primarily deal with undergraduate admissions matters, Sue Heyes will also take on the task of producing offer letters for taught and research postgraduate applicants for the Faculties of Science and Engineering. Gaynor Glover, who will lead the new team, said: “I am delighted that the staff who deal with admissions in the non-clinical Faculties are coming together to form a single team. We will be able to benefit from the experience and knowledge of all the individuals and work together to Left to right: Chris McEneaney, Gaynor Glover, Ann Hipkin, Sarah Davies, Viv Jump, Sue Heyes, Martin Robinson and Julie Wilson. make sure that our admissions procedures are as effective and efficient as they can possibly be. I am looking forward to working with the team and with individual admissions tutors as we develop our systems for the future.” “I know that a lot of admissions tutors are used to calling in to the Faculty Office with queries about applications, and I’d like to encourage them to continue to do so in the Foundation Building. We want to make sure that we maintain regular contact with colleagues in departments.” “During 2006 we will also be conducting a review of admissions, and we will be consulting our academic colleagues on this during the early part of the year, with a view to making sure that the admissions service meets the needs of both our own staff and our applicants.” The new team will be located within UKSRO on the first floor of the Foundation Building. UKSRO are also delighted to announce the appointment of Wendy Houghton, as PA to the Director and Office Manager. Wendy will be working closely with Claire Brown, liaising with the various UKSRO teams, ensuring the efficient management of the department. Claire said: “We are particularly delighted with the appointment of Wendy because not only did we feel that she possessed all the essential qualities for the role but she also has a great deal of experience of working within the University and the commercial sector. Wendy will be a welcome addition to our team as she will be joining us at a time when we are implementing a number of new initiatives to improve our approach to student recruitment marketing and admissions.”

FOUNDATION MOVE – STAFF SETTLE INTO THEIR NEW HOME AFTER MONTHS OF PREPARATION, PACKING, REORGANISING AND CLEARING OUT, THE STAFF WHO HAVE MADE THE MOVE TO THE FOUNDATION BUILDING ARE FINALLY SETTLING INTO THEIR NEW PREMISES. The Student Administration Centre was the first unit to open its doors in the impressive new surroundings, comprising a service counter for students, as well as the housing section of Student Administration and Support (above and top right). Other departments began to make their moves throughout January. One department which has been very busy because of the opening of the new building is the Records Management Service. The team carries out confidential waste collection and the transfer of records to the Records Centre on a weekly basis. Since September the demand for these services has risen extensively due to the preparation for the move to the Foundation Building. Collections at one point rose to three a week collecting between 150 and 180 bags of confidential waste per week. Around 2,000 boxes have been transferred from Senate House to the Records Centre. The Records Management Service has only been able to cope with the volume of material due to the support of the Transport section of Facilities Management, in particular Mark Barrett and Eddie Johnson. Thanks are due to them for all their hard work (bottom right). The new faith information centre, Faith Express, is now also open for business in the Foundation Building. The centre will be run as a partnership project between the Anglican, Roman Catholic and Methodist Chaplaincies, and will become the new ‘shop front’ for the chaplaincy at the University of Liverpool. It will be staffed by Jacki (the current Anglican Chaplaincy administrator) along with one duty chaplain, and will provide café space for people to drop in and chat over a drink, a lounge space for people who want to stay longer, and a small room for more private chats with chaplains. As well as the drop-in aspect and opportunity to meet with chaplaincy staff, the unit will hold information about faith activities in Liverpool to help staff and students of any faith background find the worship activities appropriate to their needs. Funding for the new centre is coming from the three partner denominations and some external grants. In addition, the University has supported the project both with a one-off financial grant and with reduced-cost access to University facilities. For more information about these developments, keep a look out for the soon-to-be launched new website www.faithexpress.net or email angchap@liverpool.ac.uk 13
