uWindsor café closure to result in part-time job cuts

April 4, 2012

The University of Windsor will close Café Chez Vanier this September to save about $300,000 in direct costs and balance Food Services' budget. Students were consulted on the decision, which allows Food Services to reserve funding for capital projects designed to improve the student experience. The decision will see the elimination of 40 part-time positions, while all full-time positions from the restaurant will be absorbed into other food outlets. The move is part of a larger realignment exercise the whole campus is undertaking to find $4.2 million in savings from uWindsor's operating budget. uWindsor Daily News | Windsor Star
