Although SDA and USask liaise on a wide range of issues, they are independent bodies.
The survey was created using the USask Survey Tool, a self-service online survey system available to faculty, staff, and students at the university.
All participants were registered on the Blackboard discussion group; participants who were not recent USask alumni had a Network Services Identification (NSID) and password assigned through the Information Technology Services Department.
Sunday evening saw the annual Welcoming Reception in the Adam Ballroom of the Delta Bessborough (where many chemical engineers from USask
celebrated their graduation in the past -- probably in a much more rollicking manner!) and at every turn chemical engineers from academia, government and industry renewed acquaintances and greeted friends and coworkers.
