Updated 2022-23 UWindsor Experience Maps are now available for distribution.
These publications are a key resource for prospective and current students to explore the academic, extracurricular, and professional opportunities available to them over the course of their studies at the University of Windsor.
Each Experience Map highlights one of 46 academic program areas to help navigate curricular, co-curricular, and career development, outlining a year-by-year path across all years of study.
Produced by the Office of Enrolment Management with the support of Office of Career Development & Experiential Learning, Public Affairs and Communications, and campus partners across departments and faculties, these experience maps include:
· program highlights and requirements;
· opportunities for students in their first, middle, and final years;
· career planning cycle and relevant competencies;
· lists of common career tracks and sectors;
· post-graduation statistics; and
· campus resources.
The development of these experience maps has been a collaborative effort between faculties, departments, and students, and they will continue to be updated on a yearly basis as the academic and professional development opportunities at the University of Windsor evolve. Digital copies are available for download at uwindsor.ca/experiencemaps.

More than a quarter (26%) of Canadians responded that they have been a victim of an email phishing scam, according to a survey prepared for the federal government.
Phishing scams can take several forms from emailing, texting, calling, or leaving a voicemail but all are trying to fool a victim to get their personal or corporate information. Hackers will use it to gain access to online accounts and more for fraudulent purposes.
“When you receive an unexpected call or email asking for personal or company information, you should think critically about the request,” says Kevin Macnaughton, team leader security in IT Services. “While the person may appear to be helpful or in need, often they’re trying to manipulate you and falling for it can cause significant monetary loss to you and the University.”
IT Services’ top five tips for spotting, and ultimately avoiding phishing are:
If you answer YES to any of the questions above, do not react to the message. Instead, if you think the message may be legitimate, contact the sender through a different communication channel to verify it. Otherwise, report the message or call to email@example.com or contact the IT Service Desk at 519-253-3000 ext. 4440.
