The UWFA Communications Committee is pleased to present UWFA’s new logo, which was designed by Josh Dudych, senior graphic designer at True North Sports and Entertainment. The logo, which features a crow homonym, draws upon the distinctive collective history of our institution, specifically the Harry Crowe Affair.
Pauline Pearson, UWFA President
Happy New Year! I hope that this newsletter finds you well and feeling re-energized for the new term. Personally, I valued the time to reconnect with family and friends over the holidays. I also am thankful that this time of year affords me the freedom to reflect on important things that get lost in the shuffle at busier times. I hope that you all found some quiet time for reflection about the upcoming year and were not overwhelmed by the holiday mania.

“As an educator and researcher, you should know this date: September 15, 1958. On that day, a crucial part of your professional identity was born. That’s the day on which Harry Crowe, a tenured professor at United College (now the University of Winnipeg) was fired.”
- Howard Pawley, former Premier of Manitoba and former student at United College
