University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman on Monday shared his vision for how the institution can move toward what he calls “UWindsor 2.0.” Over the next 3 years, he said, the university will take a 4-pronged approach to becoming “a university of exceptional distinction.” His plan includes a focus on enrolment and the student experience; an investment in faculty; the renewal of existing facilities; and a move toward activity-based budgeting. Wildeman announced that as part of the initiative the university plans to hire as many as 50 new full-time faculty members, while a shift toward “activity-based budgeting” will mean that resources will be allocated in correspondence with enrolment patterns. He also said that students will be asked to prescribe solutions to the “crisis in the humanities” through the creation of a “manifesto for the humanities.” uWindsor News | Windsor Star | CBC
