Organizing committee invites proposals for Welcome Week events

The UWindsor Welcome Week committee invites individuals and organizations to submit proposals for events for the annual fall orientation program, which this year will run September 3 to 9.

The committee is also accepting event proposals for any events to be held after classes begin September 6 that are appropriate for promotion as UWindsor Welcome Month.

All events must be inclusive and accessible for all, and must contribute toward at least three of the desired outcomes:

  • Orienting students to campus;
  • Building a sense of community;
  • Fostering school pride, civility and tradition;
  • Promoting wellness and inclusiveness; and
  • Enhancing a sense of fun and excitement.

Faculty members organizing Academic Program Orientations for departments are asked to complete a separate event notification form. Academic Program Orientations will be held Wednesday, September 6, prior to the start of classes.

Event proposals for both academic and non-academic events are due Friday, June 30 for inclusion in promotional materials that will be distributed in August and September.

All forms, planning guidelines and details are accessible on the UWindsor Welcome Week website. For further information, contact Amber Norman at or 519-253-3000, ext. 3462.
