Do not disperse funding for the Director of Drama Position, currently occupied by Ilkay Silk. Reinvest funds for this position to continue Theatre Saint Thomas.

The Drama Coordinator position, currently occupied by Ilkay Silk, is the driving force of Theatre Saint Thomas. Ilkay Silk has been an inspirational part of Saint Thomas University and her role is invaluable. After Ilkay retires this coming Spring, this position should continue to be funded to offer students the opportunity to be involved in Theatre Saint Thomas. It is not feasible for one person to adequately fulfill the responsibilities of this position in addition to having full teaching responsibilities. As such, these responsibilities should not be added to Faculty members, but should remain a separate position. Without a full-time Drama Coordinator, next year TST will suffer and eventually cease to exist. Theatre St. Thomas enriches the St. Thomas community as well as the greater Fredericton community.
**Please note that STU's established Drama Concentration, including the Drama Production courses offered by the English Department, are NOT affected by the loss of this position.**
