UOttawa expands French teachers’ education at Windsor campus

March 16, 2021
The University of Ottawa has announced plans to expand French teachers’ education at the university’s Windsor campus. UOttawa will spend $1.2M to renovate a new location for the Windsor campus, which will enable the campus to double the number of students on-site and add a new junior/intermediate teaching program. It will also accommodate a master’s degree program, professional development, and will serve as a community hub for French speakers. “This project will enable us to considerably increase our capacity to educate future teachers in Southwest Ontario, and to diversify our program offerings in Windsor," said Richard Barwell, dean of UOttawa’s faculty of education.
