Assumption University appoints UWindsor alum as next principal

UWindsor alumnus John Cappucci (BA 2006) will begin a six-year term as principal of Assumption University, the Roman Catholic university federated with the University of Windsor, on Sept. 1. He has served as its interim principal since 2019, and has held the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict since 2017.

β€œIt is a privilege to take up the principalship given our 163-year legacy,” said Dr. Cappucci. β€œI look forward to continuing to honour our proud heritage by developing new and innovative academic programs, supporting our dynamic campus ministry program, and working with our community partners to deliver engaging public events.”

Assumption chancellor Ronald Fabbro, Bishop of London, will preside over a formal installation ceremony this fall. Read more in the official announcement.
