The Leonard and Dorothy Neal Education Building was named to honour a philanthropist who provided significant support to education, art and health institutions in Windsor.
Leonard Neal, who died in 2001, was one of UWindsor’s most dedicated supporters. President of Tamco Limited and a past chair of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association, Neal received the Clark Award in 1996 for his outstanding contributions to the University.
A Fall Festival on campus November 20 will extend celebrations of the University's 50th anniversary year.
The Odette School of Business will unveil its newly renovated south wing during opening ceremonies at the building on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 4 p.m.
The official grand opening is part of UWindsor’s 50th Anniversary Celebration weekend and honours the vision of the building’s namesakes, Louis and Edmond Odette, of converting the former bookstore space into an integrated part of the original Odette building.
One of the best parts of any celebration is the food, and five local restaurants are pulling out all the stops to help UWindsor celebrate its 50th anniversary this weekend.
