This is a difficult time for our community and for you as students. The University wants you to know that your safety and your academic progress is our number one consideration. I also know that this is difficult time for many of you emotionally. For what it’s worth Lancers, here’s some unsolicited advice: be kind to yourself and others, limit your time reviewing the news, and perhaps take the opportunity of more time to yourself to explore something new – read or listen to a new great book, explore a new skill set by learning online, write, download a meditation app, or explore a new potential career path. As best you can, occupy yourself and your mind with positive things. You are resilient and smart people. You can and will get through this.
In the coming days and weeks, UWindsor will be continuing to update its expansive COVID-19 website, which includes all the University updates, helpful videos and FAQs. Student specific newsletters may also be sent, and these will outline the other actions we will be undertaking to make sure UWindsor student services can support students as long as possible.
In the short term, should you have any questions about how the University is responding to any particular issue, check out the University’s website, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or DM us through our various social media platforms as you have been doing. We’ll do our best to get back to you promptly.
