A Message from the President to the University of Windsor Community

Dear members of the University of Windsor community,

In one of our residences this week, on April 6, a young man suddenly and tragically passed away. I know I share with all of you our deepest sympathies for his family and friends, and our deepest sorrows at this loss. It is at times like this that we are reminded of the importance of community and the importance of being there for each other. I encourage those who seek support during this difficult time to contact one of the available services listed below.

Alan Wildeman
President and Vice-Chancellor
