IONA is going Inter-Faith and Ecumenical
Reconstituting Iona College
While honouring our United Church roots, Iona College has chosen to become an inter-faith college, and ecumenical within the Christian tradition. With support from representatives from diverse faith communities and traditions, and in co-operation with our partners in the Chaplaincy Network and the University, Iona intends to continue serving the students, faculty, and staff of the University, as well as the surrounding community.
Our courses have been dependant on Dr. Norman King, and a special thanks goes to him. We hope that the next phase of Iona’s life will see revised and expanded course offerings, building on Norm’s legacy. Norm has also been the coordinator of the Interfaith Group of Windsor and Essex County, which is one of the sources of inspiration for Iona’s reconstitution
The Faculty of Law building is closing for extensive renovations at the end of the current semester. This will mean the closing of the Amicus Curiae Café. The Café is currently our major source of revenue. We will also be losing Iona’s long serving Office Manager, Café manager, food bank supervisor, staff secretary, etc., etc., etc.; Sandi Rose. Sandi is retiring at the end of this semester. She cannot be thanked enough. It will quite literally be impossible to replace her.
We respectfully acknowledge that Iona College resides on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations,
which includes the Ojibwa, the Odawa, and the Potawatomie.
