Acting executive director to head Co-op, Career and Employment Services

Provost Douglas Kneale announced Tuesday the appointment of Christopher Busch as acting executive director of Co-op, Career and Employment Services for a two-year term.

Since 2013, Busch has served as director of the Centre for Executive and Professional Education, where he has been responsible for supporting academic partnership programs, expansion of continuing education offerings, and international recruitment.

In his new role he will oversee UWindsor’s recently enhanced initiatives in co-operative education and career development for students and new graduates, which includes a range of services to assist with employment readiness, work placements, volunteering opportunities, resume preparation, and interviewing skills, Dr. Kneale said.

He succeeds Mitch Fields, who has accepted the position of acting dean of the Odette School of Business.
