Town hall meeting to update campus on Strategic Mandate Agreement

UWindsor president Robert Gordon and the team working on the University’s next Strategic Mandate Agreement with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities will host a town hall meeting for students, faculty, and staff from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, in the Winclare Room, Vanier Hall.

This event is intended to update the campus community on the process of negotiating Strategic Mandate Agreement 3 (SMA3). A draft was submitted to the ministry in mid-December, and the team met with government representatives on Jan. 29 to review their feedback. A revised version of the document, amended in response to that input, will be made available to the campus community on Feb. 3 on the University’s SMA3 website.

The new agreement will establish performance metrics, targets, and enrolment corridors related to ministry 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 about the SMA3 development and consultation process can be found on the SMA3 website.
