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.
