Funding available for campus safety initiatives

The Women’s Campus Safety Grant Committee is seeking applications for funding for initiatives to promote safety for women on campus. Initiatives must be completed and invoices paid by March 31, 2015. The committee encourages creative, innovative proposals from members of the university community, including individuals or groups, faculty, staff and students.

The Women’s Campus Safety Grant Committee is a presidential standing committee established to address women’s safety issues on campus, and in so doing, to establish, promote and improve facilities, programs and services at the University of Windsor. The annual grant ($35,000) has been provided by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities since 1991.

In accordance with the parameters set by the ministry, submissions are required to support one of the following broad categories/objectives:

  • facilities and equipment (e.g., lighting, mirrors, security cameras)
  • public education (e.g., workshops, flyers)
  • activity support (e.g., T-shirts or jackets for Campus Walk programs, resource materials, programs)
