President credits partnerships for medal honour

University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman said his receipt of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tribute to cross-campus partnerships that serve the community.

Dr. Wildeman received the medal in a ceremony August 25 at the nomination of Windsor West MPP Teresa Piruzza, who cited his outstanding contributions to higher education and the economic development of the Windsor-Essex region. The Canadian government created the medal to mark significant achievements in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.
