The newest member of the UWindsor administration brings 15 years of progressive leadership experience in student affairs, says interim provost Patti Weir.
Shetina Jones has accepted an appointment as associate vice-president, student experience, effective May 15. She comes to Windsor from her current position as director of student success and graduate opportunities at the University of Detroit Mercy. Her previous roles include serving as the dean of students and the director of the Center for Leadership in Management and Business at Wilberforce University, and senior associate director of residential living and learning at Texas A&M-Commerce.
“The committee was impressed by Dr. Jones’s commitment to student-centred experiences and transformational learning,” Dr. Weir said. “Her critical lenses and impressive track record as a leader in student affairs speak to what we heard our community tell us they needed in this leader.”
Jones said she can’t wait to get to know the community — and get to work.
“I am so excited to join the University of Windsor in this important leadership role,” she said. “There are important conversations happening here that position us to lead the way forward in shaping truly exceptional and equitable experiences for all students.”
