Mary Jo Haddad was installed May 28 as the eighth Chancellor of the University of Windsor during the first session of the University’s 111th Convocation, in the St. Denis Centre.

Dr. Haddad CM, LLD, MHSC, BScN, former president and CEO of the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and recipient of a 2005 honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Windsor, serves as the titular head of the University and confers all degrees and diplomas on behalf of the Senate.

Dr. Haddad called her first experience in the job an “indelible memory – The thrill of the day was absolutely the students.”
