Faculty called upon to submit plans for Sept. 8 program orientation sessions

The Student Success and Leadership Centre invites faculty who are planning Academic Program Orientations on Wednesday, Sept. 8, to submit their proposals no later than Friday, Aug. 7.

Program orientations, Involvement Fair, and the Welcoming Celebration are the three key events of “Welcome Day,” scheduled for Sept. 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on VFairs, the same platform used for Head Start.

“We wanted to keep all three of these events in the same platform in an effort to raise the participation at each,” says Rebecca Burkoski, interim student development specialist at the Student Success and Leadership Centre.

During Welcome Day, all program orientations will be hosted as interactive sessions in the virtual Vfairs Auditorium, similar to the Program Success Sessions at Head Start. They will be hosted through a virtual meeting of choice (e.g. Teams, Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate) of each faculty.

Following the program orientations, the Involvement Fair will showcase a variety of campus clubs, societies, services, and resources.

To end Welcome Day, the Student Success and Leadership Centre will host the virtual Welcoming Celebration, which will feature the presentation of the UWindsor Shield to the winning Welcome Week team and the $4,000 tuition bursary draw sponsored by the University of Windsor Alumni Association.
