President delivers message to newly-minted graduates

The way the UWindsor community honours its graduates has changed due to the necessity of social distancing, but in a video message delivered during Convocation week, president Rob Gordon said the spirit of the celebration and pride in their achievements remains the same.

“I know there are real people and real stories behind each and every diploma handed out on Convocation day, and though we won’t be gathering in person for the time being, I want you to know that your stories are important to me and to everyone at the University of Windsor,” he said.

Dr. Gordon called on the newest alumni to take their educations and make their marks in the world: “Not just for yourselves, but for those who’ve supported you, and for those in the world who need what you now have to offer.”
