UWindsor students vote yes to $73M athletic complex expansion

February 6, 2017

Undergraduate students at the University of Windsor have approved the construction of a new athletics facility. CBC reports that the motion to approve the construction passed with a 64% majority, with students voting to pay $125 annually in additional fees to fund the project beginning in 2019. The project received criticism from some who argued that the additional fees would unfairly burden students, but UWindsor Dean of Human Kinetics Michael Khan says that the new centre will be invaluable for students' physical and mental health. Khan adds that the next step will be to solicit written approval from all of the school’s student presidents before putting the centre to the board of governors for final approval. Khan tells CBC that he is hopeful that the new complex will be completed in three to four years. CBC | Windsor Star | Windsor Star (Criticism)
