Nursing professor Judy Bornais was recently awarded the “Stanley Cup of higher education” – a 3M National Teaching Fellowship – for her transformative educational leadership, as well as her dedication to the region’s health care system.  

Bornais pioneered the Standardized Patient Program and the Simulation Program, which give UWindsor Nursing and Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry students practical, hands-on patient experiences. She also worked to help establish the UWindsor Peer Collaboration Network where faculty members can share strategies and feedback on teaching practices. 

She has accepted a one-year term as UWindsor acting executive director, Experiential Learning, where she and her team will support learning opportunities for students which include paid co-op placements, co-curricular volunteering, and program-integrated opportunities.
