Provost seeking opinions on strategies to address mental health

Provost Douglas Kneale would like to learn more about people’s priorities to ensure the campus environment supports mental health and wellness. He is making it the subject of September’s question of the month.

The Provost’s Question of the Month contest is an opportunity for staff, students, and faculty to tell the University what they think about their experiences on campus. It’s also a chance to win a great UWindsor hoodie — every month, the campus community is invited to submit a response to a question about life on campus, and one lucky respondent wins the prize.

“The fall term is always such an exciting time, full of promise and expectations, but it can also be a stressful time — even a little overwhelming,” says Dr. Kneale. “We want our students’ experiences here to be amazing, and we want everyone to be ready to tackle the challenges of university with the tools and resilience to thrive intellectually, emotionally, and socially.”

A team of staff, faculty, students, and administrators has been developing a comprehensive mental health strategy for the campus, looking at everything from policies and procedures to campus environment, to awareness raising and skill development, to identification and services.

To further its work, this month’s question is:
What is one thing that you would like to see in a UWindsor student mental health strategy?
