Welcome to the Office of the Provost at the University of Windsor.
Who we are
The University of Windsor is exceptional. Take, for starters, the broad range of programs we offer – Engineering, Law, Nursing, Education, Business, Human Kinetics, Science, and Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. Then add in our signature programs in Great Lakes research, Visual Arts & the Built Environment, Social Work, Sport Management, Health & Biomedical Sciences, and a dual Law degree in both Canada and the US. Having such a rich mix of programs – professional, applied, experiential, and theoretical – means that our students have far-reaching opportunities in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular ways.
Where we are
No other university in Canada can boast a location that is 600 metres away from a foreign country, an international neighbour, and a city with a French name: Detroit. Put a compass in the middle of the iconic Ambassador Bridge, describe a circle, and you have a greater metropolitan area of more than 5 million people in two different countries, with exponential social and cultural opportunities. We are in that part of Canada once known as la nouvelle France, which explains our rich heritage of French place-names. Our campus is situated on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations. We are a culturally and ethnically diverse community that welcomes the world to Windsor.
Where you fit in
Whether you are a current or future member of the University of Windsor community – student, faculty, or staff – I invite you to browse these pages for more information about us, or follow the links to learn about our priorities, our successes, and our aspirations. You will find that since 1857 we have been a progressive and inclusive community that comes together to study, to learn, to teach, and to serve. We are a community where we care for one another, where we have our neighbour’s back, and our neighbour has ours. And we are proud of that. We are Windsor Proud.
Fall 2021 semester
We are planning for a measured return to in-person instruction in September 2021 – while keeping the safety of our campus community in mind and complying with all federal, provincial, and local health regulations. We anticipate that we will be able to offer face-to-face teaching to a greater degree, balancing health and safety protocols with the desire to be together once again as a campus community.
If you are considering attending the University of Windsor this September, be sure to visit our Spring Open House on March 6, 2021. You can follow this link to register.
I hope to see you soon on campus – for real, not just virtually! And together we’ll write the next episode in your amazing educational odyssey.
