University of Windsor
The University of Windsor sits on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, which includes the Ojibwa, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. We acknowledge the need to continuously rebuild and strengthen the relationships with Indigenous peoples, in particular the First Nations people in this place in the 100-mile Windsor-Essex peninsula and the straits – les détroits – of Detroit.
The University of Windsor is a comprehensive, student-focused university, with more than 16,000 students enrolled in a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programs.
We have strong student-faculty relationships, exceptional award-winning faculty and innovative staff. It creates a unifying atmosphere of excellence across all of our faculties to encourage lifelong learning, teaching, research and discovery.
