President to host town hall meeting on Strategic Mandate Agreement

President Robert Gordon and other UWindsor senior leadership will host the second of two town hall meetings for students, faculty, and staff from 1 to 2:30 p.m. today — Thursday, Oct. 31 — in the Alumni Auditorium, CAW Student Centre.

These events are intended to provide the campus community an update on the development of the University’s plan for negotiating Strategic Mandate Agreement 3 with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.

The agreement will establish performance metrics, targets, and enrolment corridors related to provincial funding for the 2020-25 period. Beginning in 2020, approximately $23 million of the University’s existing provincial grant will be tied to achieving annual performance targets. By 2024-25, that amount will increase to nearly $56 million.

More information is available on the University’s new SMA3 Process website. A video of the town hall session will be uploaded to the site for those unable to attend in person.
