April 16, 2012

In an ongoing effort to support its strategic plan, the University of Windsor has committed close to $2.5 million from its Strategic Priority Fund to support new initiatives and programs to improve the student experience, pursue strengths in research and graduate education, recruit and retain the best faculty and staff, and engage in and foster community and international partnerships. One of the projects approved for the 2012-13 budget year is 4Winds, which aims to facilitate Aboriginal participation in post-secondary STEM fields. Participating students in Grades 6 to 8 will take part in science and technology experiences that are extensions of Aboriginal cultural practices in interacting with nature for energy, food, health, and shelter. uWindsor Daily News
