To support first-year students as they transition into their post-secondary educational journey at the University of Windsor, we have created JumpStart, a program intended to provide resources, support, and strategies that will prepare you for life as a Lancer!
It will eliminate some of the navigational burdens associated with finding and obtaining support and developing your skills to succeed at the University of Windsor. It consolidates resources and encourages students to take ownership over their own learning, evolve their professional knowledge and identities, and explore opportunities for connection and getting involved. University is a journey you can manage. Here's to your new adventure!
- give you practical academic strategies to succeed
- familiarize you with campus and it's resources
- connect you with other students in first year
- help you navigate your new school community
We have created six modules that you can explore at your own pace throughout your first year of University. These modules are inspired by Dr. Diana Brecher's and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer's Thriving in Action program at Ryerson University and the Bounce Back program at the University of Windsor.
eBook Information and Access
Below, you will find information about what each of the six asynchronous modules contain and the link to the eBook that you can access at anytime.
