Dr. Alan Wildeman Announces 2018 Departure During Annual Address

University of Windsor President and Vice Chancellor Alan Wildeman today announced that he will leave his position effective June 2018. Dr. Wildeman was appointed to his position July 1, 2008.

The announcement came at the annual State of the University address this morning at which Dr. Wildeman said he had made his decision only after long reflection.

“I am immensely proud of what the University has accomplished since I’ve been here. But it is all of you who have done it and the biggest task and the biggest joy for me is to applaud you,” said Dr. Wildeman to an audience that included faculty, staff, students, board members, retirees, and community leaders.

“It’s the right time for renewal to occur. The rebuilding of the campus, the integration into the downtown, the investment in new faculty, the need to make the rest of Ontario more aware of us, and most importantly the need to never waver from our story of letting students know that they come first…these were the things I saw as being important when I began.”

Dr. Wildeman informed the University’s Board of Governors of his decision prior to his address and the board will immediately begin the process to undertake a search for the next President and Vice-Chancellor.
