Questionnaire seeks to gauge research and teaching on environmental sustainability

How green is our tally? Paul Henshaw hopes to provide an answer to that question by using the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS to quantify the state of the University of Windsor.

To that end, the UWindsor environmental advocate has circulated a questionnaire asking faculty members whether their research or courses are focused on, or related to, sustainability.

Survey to weigh commuter routes to campus

An online survey of the ways UWindsor faculty, students and staff get to campus will help researchers to measure the University’s overall environmental impact.

The questionnaire asks participants about their trips to campus to study or work, and whether they travel by car, bus, bicycle or on foot. Participants may enter a draw to win one of five prizes worth $100 as UWinCARD credit or a University Bookstore gift certificate.

Campus improvements among engineering student capstone designs

If the closure of Sunset Avenue between Fanchette and Wyandotte streets results in a smoother traffic flow around campus and beautiful green spaces replacing parking lots, you may have a group of civil engineering students to thank.

Fourth-year students Jingda He, Ahmad Merheb, Zaid Najjar and Mahmoud Shahwan presented preliminary plans for redesigning the Sunset corridor during a poster display Friday in the Centre for Engineering Innovation, showing the progress of capstone design projects for seniors in civil and environmental engineering.

Event to showcase UWindsor’s opportunities for graduate study

Paul Henshaw likes it when his undergraduate students approach him to discuss opportunities for graduate study.

“It shows there is a connection there, an interest in what we’re studying,” says the acting associate dean of graduate studies, a professor of civil and environmental engineering.

Still, he says, the faculty’s perspective is just one part of deciding whether to pursue further education. That’s why the Graduate Studies Showcase, Wednesday in the CAW Student Centre Commons, is structured to provide a range of perspectives.
