A memorandum of understanding between the University of Windsor and the Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management will broaden global contacts and build partnerships for both schools, says Diana Kao, UWindsor associate vice-provost, international.
A delegation from the school, located in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, visited the UWindsor campus in April. The visit culminated in a ceremony to mark a formal agreement to seek opportunities for cooperation, including faculty and student exchange and research collaborations.
The relationship between post-secondary institutions and their host communities is the subject of a symposium of the Town and Gown Association of Ontario, in Windsor from May 12 to 14.
The symposium, entitled “Bridging our Future,” is sponsored by the City of Windsor, in partnership with the University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island and the Windsor Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association.
His experience in the simulation labs as a UWindsor nursing student helped Andrew Peltier land his dream job. Even before his June Convocation, the fourth-year student will take up a position in the emergency department of North York General Hospital.
He said the scenario-based job interview was not much different from what he did in the Faculty of Nursing labs.
