What is Battle of the Faculties

Last year, the University of Windsor introduced a new Welcome Week format, the Battle of the Faculties!

The inter-faculty rivalry has students form teams from within each major of study, earning points for participation and success in a series of events and challenges! Faculties include...

  • Nursing
  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Science
  • Human Kinetics

The winners will have a chance to crown their faculty the greatest, as well as receiving the Lancer Shield and a commemorative plaque that will be hung up in the new lounge, The Hum, located in the basement of the CAW Student Centre, where their greatness will be immortalized for the rest of UWindsor history!

Check out some of our past winners, and the legacy of The Shield here
