uWindsor unveils new master plan

June 19, 2013

The University of Windsor’s board of governors has approved a master plan for the next 50 years to make the university more competitive. The plan, which marks uWindsor’s 50th anniversary, includes an $8-million welcome centre for students and a proposal for a landscaped pedestrian bridge across railway tracks that run through the campus. uWindsor hired +VG Architects, the Ventin Group Ltd., to conduct consultations with the administration, faculty members, students, and the board of governors to develop the new plan. Other proposals that came out of these consultations include new pedestrian pathways, enhanced lighting, cultural displays and gathering places with more seating. CBC
