New president puts focus on listening and learning

UWindsor president Robert Gordon plans to do a lot of listening and learning to begin his tenure, he said in his first official address to the campus community, Monday in the student centre.

Before a full house of University officials, employees, and students, he listed top priorities that included connecting with community partners, planning for financial sustainability, finalizing the strategic mandate agreement with the province, and building infrastructure.

Already, he noted, the University is the economic engine of Windsor-Essex, and he is eager to build on its legacy as regionally relevant but global leaders.

“I am thrilled to be part of this community and this family,” Dr. Gordon concluded.
