Administrator to helm external portfolio

Professor Judy Bornais, executive director of the Office of Experiential Learning, has accepted an appointment as associate vice-president, external, for a four-year term beginning March 4.

The role is pivotal to upholding and enhancing the University’s reputation and to fostering strong connections among the campus community and alumni, partners and donors, government representatives, and local communities, says president Robert Gordon.

“Please join me in extending our support to Judy as she embarks on this new and vital role at the University of Windsor,” he said in announcing the appointment Thursday.

He touted Bornais’ extensive experience in leadership, community engagement, partner engagement, and program development, cultivated during a 25-year career at the University of Windsor and in the broader Windsor-Essex region, as a significant asset in ensuring a smooth transition while driving forward strategic endeavours in collaboration with the teams in Public Affairs and Communications, Alumni Affairs, Advancement, and other units across campus.

The University will launch the process for appointing an interim executive director of the Office of Experiential Learning in the near future.
