The Huffington Post has named the University of Windsor the number one university to watch in Canada.

Based on the Canadian University Rankings, The Huffington Post has selected five universities it considers to be "Canada's Rising Stars."

The publication says the institutions named already have a lot to offer and promise to become household names in the near future. The online news site cited UWindsor’s investment in infrastructure, programs, and research among the reasons for its inclusion in the list:

"UWindsor is growing not only in enrollment and endowment, but also in size and scope of programs. The institution has invested hundreds of millions of dollars into new buildings, programs, and research over the past year.

Last year, they secured an $85.8 million grant from the Ontario government to enhance innovative research at the UWindsor-Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada Automotive Research and Development Centre. 

More recently, they secured $30 million in funding to construct a new Science Research and Innovation Centre, where students, teachers, and researchers will have an incredible space for creativity and collaboration.

Other major investments include $75 million for social work, dramatic arts, music and creative arts programs; a $112 million engineering school; a $30 million parking garage; and an $8.4 million welcome centre and Joyce Centre for Entrepreneurship."
