UWindsor researcher champions collaborative freshwater research project

The Great Lakes will have a network of well-equipped guardians thanks to a plan hatched by a UWindsor researcher with funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Ontario’s Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science and Ministry of Economic Development and Growth.

Aaron Fisk and his nine collaborators will receive $15.9 million for the Real-time Aquatic Ecosystem Observation Network (RAEON), a collaborative research project which will provide infrastructure and data management for Canadian scientists to carry-out cutting-edge research on freshwater ecosystems.

Environmental Engineering builds students up for success

With a foundation in environmental engineering, Christina Ure knows the future is hers to build.

That’s because her degree from the University of Windsor makes her adept in the valuable art of solving problems.

“As an environmental engineer, we do a lot of problem-solving work for some of the world’s biggest issues,” Ure said.

“That gives us a really good base for other fields – whether that’s business, law or medicine.”

School of Creative Arts comes to life in downtown Windsor

January 4, 2018 marked a historic moment for students, faculty and staff at UWindsor’s School of Creative Arts.

Over the last four years, the late-19th-century Romanesque structure in the city’s downtown core reverberated with the frenzied sounds of construction.

But on Thursday, the notes from students practising piano and lectures by professors in classrooms drifted up to fill the lofty Windsor Armouries.

“So many people contributed to this project and now seeing it come to life is pretty incredible,” said University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman.
