Welcome Week volunteersRegister academic program orientation sessions and apply to hold social events during UWindsor Welcome Week by June 28.

Submit soon to promote your Welcome Week event

The UWindsor Welcome Week committee invites individuals and organizations to submit proposals for events for the annual fall orientation program.

Those interested in offering a social event must submit an event proposal no later than Friday, June 28, to have it included in promotional materials to be distributed in August and September. Applicants will be called to attend a meeting to explain their program to organizers.

“The committee will advise whether their event is approved, pending or disapproved,” says Amber Norman, student development specialist in the Student Success and Leadership Centre. “Only events approved by the Program Proposal Committee will be advertised in our schedule and app.”

Faculty members planning Academic Program Orientations for Wednesday, September 4, do not require approval by the committee, but must submit a form to be allocated space.

“As always, we have pre-booked all academic spaces on campus for that period and so we will need to provide faculty with their room assignments,” Norman says. “If they have already reserved their academic space, they still need to fill out this form if they want us to promote their program orientation.”

She encourages faculty and staff to download the UWindsor Events app, which will give them access to the information sent to students about Welcome Week, Head Start, and open house activities. Visit the orientation website to find the app.

“That way, if they see anything they know is incorrect, they can bring it to our attention so we can provide the most up-to-date details,” she says.
