Goudge Inquiry focus of sociology prof's lecture at forensic sciences centre

An invitation to speak to some of the top forensic scientists in the country will provide a UWindsor sociology professor with the chance to impress upon them that there’s a serious disconnect between the goals of social workers and the recommendations of a pediatric forensic pathology inquiry into the wrongful convictions of several Canadians accused of killing children.

International students still seeking holiday hosts

Just a couple of days before the Thanksgiving weekend, Enrique Chacon is starting to worry about finding enough volunteers for the Host for the Holidays program.

He is one of the organizers of the program, which matches international students with Windsor families willing open their homes to share Thanksgiving dinner with a visitor from overseas.

Law student headed for highest court in the land

Though it may be a more anonymous, behind-the-scenes sort of job, a third-year Windsor law student is looking forward to the opportunity of getting a rare glimpse into the legal decisions made by the highest court in the land.

Alana Longmoore learned earlier this year that beginning next September she’ll start a coveted clerkship at the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa, making her only the sixth UWindsor student to secure such a position dating back to 1986 when the Faculty of Law started keeping records.

Research Matters to focus on sex assault resistance program

Psychology professor Charlene Senn will discuss her study on the effectiveness of a new sexual assault resistance training program when she appears on CJAM 99.1 FM this afternoon.

Earlier this year Dr. Senn received a $1.3 million grant for the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to study the program as it's implemented at the University of Windsor, the University of Calgary and the University of Guelph. If proven effective at reducing incidences of sexual assault, it will be offered to university campuses right across the country.

Campus welcomes return of residence students

When she arrived at the University of Windsor three years ago to begin her post-secondary career, she was grateful for assistance in getting settled, recalls chemistry student Samantha Scalia.

“It was really hectic,” she said. “I was so glad to have so many people helping new students.”

That’s why she decided to get involved as a volunteer with Windsor Welcome Week. Scalia was one of dozens of students who pitched in to help about new arrivals haul their belongings into residence Sunday.
