Aspire: Together for Tomorrow

Aspire: Together for Tomorrow is the planning process for the University of Windsor’s next strategic plan, which will be our most important navigational tool guiding the institution’s decision making over the following five years and allowing us to capitalize on opportunities to grow and thrive.

Feedback and guidance from the UWindsor community, as well as the broader Windsor-Essex region, is essential in this year-long, thoughtful process to guide and shape the university’s future. The planning process will:

  • Inform short and long-term goals 
  • Establish benchmarks to measure progress 
  • Establish public accountability reporting 
  • Determine our priorities and focus our energies

Wanted: Your Voice. Your Input.  

In this way, and many more, your input is critical for building the vision and future of the University of Windsor – that we can all be proud of. Whether you are a student or University employee, a Windsor-Essex resident, business owner, visitor or investor, your voice is greatly needed to shape the strategic plan.

The University began preliminary planning in Spring 2021 including forming a steering committee comprised of members from within the University of Windsor community and the Windsor-Essex region.

Aspire will be out in the community in the new year to hear your voice! Public consultations in 2022 will include online engagement and in-person events, feedback opportunities and more! Important data will be collected between now and April; analysis of data from December through May and plan development between May and August. Final approval is planned for early Fall 2022.

Please visit the UWindsor Online Engagement Platform at engageuwindsor.ca to learn more and to read the position paper that outlines the university’s approach to Strategic Planning. The purpose of the position paper is to communicate our proposed plan with the community, and to invite you to provide your input.

Additional opportunities to engage and participate will be shared via the Online Engagement Platform (engageuwindsor.ca) as well as through a variety of University of Windsor communication tools and consultation sessions.

Please join us in building the Strategic Plan together. Your input is critical for building the vision – and a future – that we can all be proud of. We look forward to your participation and feedback.
