Roast of UWindsor chancellor raises $5.3 million toward Centre for Engineering Innovation

University of Windsor chancellor Ed Lumley was a willing target of endless barbs about everything from his hair to his football skills, delivered by former prime ministers, premiers and federal and provincial cabinet ministers during a roast Wednesday, May 30, that helped raise $5.3 million for the engineering building under construction on the UWindsor campus.

Chancellor roast to spark University’s 50th anniversary celebrations

A roast of UWindsor Chancellor Ed Lumley, May 30 at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel, is a first harbinger of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2013/14.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the Centre for Engineering Innovation, a project Lumley describes as near and dear to his heart. The dramatic new building is an important first step in a master plan that will transform the campus.
