School of Creative Arts comes to life in downtown Windsor

January 4, 2018 marked a historic moment for students, faculty and staff at UWindsor’s School of Creative Arts.

Over the last four years, the late-19th-century Romanesque structure in the city’s downtown core reverberated with the frenzied sounds of construction.

But on Thursday, the notes from students practising piano and lectures by professors in classrooms drifted up to fill the lofty Windsor Armouries.

“So many people contributed to this project and now seeing it come to life is pretty incredible,” said University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman.

Faculty, students honoured with Mayor's Awards

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens honoured several members of the University of Windsor community last month.

Dilkens presented awards to 29 individuals and groups for making the city a better place during the Celebrating 2017 Mayor’s Awards.

The University, staff and students received five of the awards.

Graduate student Austin Roth received the mayor’s Award for Athletics and Recreation.

Dilkens said Roth had many nominations and was selected because he has been valued as a team player, mentor, coach and friend.

Update notes uptick in student enrolment

An increase in first-year undergraduate enrolment reverses a multi-year trend, UWindsor president Alan Wildeman announced in a message to the campus community Wednesday.

“The net result is that there are in excess of 400 more full-time students on campus this year,” he notes.

His Update #34 praises the efforts of faculty and staff to raise awareness of what the University has to offer students, and also provides information on the status of new faculty positions, current construction projects, employee retirements, and the Strategic Mandate Agreement.
