A survey by the WindsorEssex Community Foundation will measure residents’ views of local issues, providing an opportunity for UWindsor students, faculty, and staff to make an impact, says Wen Teoh.
Director of the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre), she volunteers on the foundation’s board and calls its Vital Signs survey a catalyst for community dialogue about “who we are, what we do, why we do it, and where it can lead.”
Questions seek respondents’ opinions on the natural environment, safety, transportation, education, housing, employment, and cultural outlets. Those who complete the survey have a chance to win $100.
A report will combine the results with national, provincial, and local data to determine where measures are needed to make the community a better place to live, learn, work, play, and grow. Reports from past years are available for download here.
