Mission Statement

OPUS is a dynamic organization that advocates and promotes a rewarding University of Windsor experience for part-time students.


The Organization of Part-Time University Students (OPUS) was established in 1969 to provide a means for part-time students to have their voices heard on campus.

We believe that part-time students have different needs, concerns and problems distinct from those of the rest of the undergraduate student body. These students work hard to balance their many responsibilities of home, family, work and education.

OPUS attempts to help students cope with the additional pressure of studies and the adjustment to an academic environment.
