Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

The University of Windsor is a progressive, student-centred university, where the challenges of communities and of a world in transition inform the education we provide, the research we do, and the creative endeavours we pursue.

Our Mission

Enabling people to make a better world through education, scholarship, research, and engagement.


Since 1963, the University of Windsor has been a forward-looking community that comes together to study, to learn, to teach, and to serve. Our symbol is the bridge; our vista is cross-border; our commitment is local; and our impact is global.

Wherever you’re from, and whether you’re a prospective student or parent, professor or staff member, alumnus or donor or friend, you will find in us a dynamic, inclusive community of higher learning with roots going back more than 160 years and with a future full of promise.
