University of Windsor
In the more than 150 years that have since past, the small, liberal arts college has grown into today’s non-denominational, comprehensive, teaching and learning university. More than 16,000 students attend the University of Windsor today and its alumni family is over 100,000 strong.
The University of Windsor is located at the crossroads of North America, 15 minutes from the start of Highway 401 or Michigan’s I-75, and facing one of Canada’s most beautiful waterfronts on the Detroit River. The campus covers 51 hectares (125 acres), boasts more than 140 undergraduate and graduate programs across nine faculties, and it offers nine cooperative education programs. The Liberal and Professional Studies: Aeronautics Leadership Program is an academic program within the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), which is the largest faculty at the university.
That location speaks to UWindsor’s greatness as an internationally oriented, multi-disciplined institution that actively encourages a broad diversity of students, faculty and staff. Those strengths vault it to the forefront of Canadian universities in the creation of an awareness and appreciation of difference — difference in ethnic backgrounds, difference in cultures and difference in dreams.
From that diversity, the University fosters an atmosphere of close cooperation between faculty and students, creating a unifying atmosphere of excellence across all of its faculties to encourage lifelong learning, teaching, research and discovery. Its basic characteristics of openness, warmth and support make the University of Windsor an exceptionally welcoming community for students and faculty from Asia, Europe, and Africa — or from just down the street
