Windsor businessperson and UWindsor alumna Jennifer Jones has been named Chair of the University of Windsor’s Board of Governors Wednesday. She will replace current Board Chair Martin Girash whose term ends this week.

“The University of Windsor is truly experiencing a renaissance with our Campus Transformation Plan, the development of our downtown campus and the completion of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation this fall,” Jones says. “Our focus on the student experience remains paramount and will be truly amplified as we enter into celebrations to mark our 50th anniversary in just over a year. There could be no better time to assume the position of the Chair of the Board of Governors and I look forward to sharing the excitement with our more than 100,000 alumni from around the world.”
