Student excitement is building with the May 2011 announcement of Visual Arts, Music and Social Work programs moving into the downtown core.
The University of Windsor will join St. Clair College in making downtown Windsor an education destination. UWindsor's downtown campus, though only minutes from main campus, will bring the School for Arts & Creative Innovation to the Armouries Building - joining St. Clair College's vibrant Centre for the Arts and Mediaplex in enlivening the downtown area. Additionally, the School of Social Work and the Centre for Executive and Professional Education will relocate to the Windsor Star building.
Visual Arts and the Music programs will move to the Armouries in downtown Windsor thanks to the City of Windsor's capital donation of the building and a $10 million gift, and the provincial government's investment of $15 million.
