Stanley Whyte (Chief Invigilator, Enrolment Services) oversees approximately 60,000 exams run at McGill each regular academic term. Behind the scenes, it is Stanley Whyte who manages on a grand scale this process vital to university life with a steady hand. He is responsible for the creation of all exam schedules, and he manages exam production for all formal final exams held in undergraduate courses. He supervises the team of exams and invigilation coordinators. And he oversees the process of scoring thousands of answer sheets for all multiple-choice exams. Among those who contact him daily for advice and support, he is widely admired for consummate professionalism, accuracy, collegiality, and kindness– he never misses a beat. At Arts OASIS, we know him as someone with whom it is consistently a pleasure to work with—on whom we can always rely for answers, support, and getting things done. Although anxiety comes along with exams, he is always at the ready with a quick response and compassionate remark, the elegant flexible solution, and good humour. As we nominate him, we note that his colleagues are “very happy” that he’s receiving this nomination – this has been emphasized to us. His pivotal work at the university, indispensable to a process sometimes unwelcome but crucial to student experience and learning, often goes unrecognized, and they are delighted by the prospect of wider recognition for his excellent work.
