July 2 and 3 declared University holidays

UWindsor president Rob Gordon has declared Thursday and Friday, July 2 and 3, University holidays in appreciation for the work by employees during the first 100 days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He sent a message to staff and faculty on June 25, thanking them for their ability to adapt at a moment’s notice to changing circumstances.

“At the University of Windsor, we have met that challenge with patience, persistence, and grace in the face of adversity,” Dr. Gordon wrote.

Acknowledging the short notice, he added that those in essential services and with work-related commitments for those dates may take the holidays at another time.

“I’m hoping that everyone can take a bit of a break from MS Teams and enjoy some much-deserved time off,” Gordon said, concluding: “On behalf of the entire Leadership Team at the University of Windsor, I wish you all a very safe and relaxing Canada Day and long weekend!”
