The Welcome Centre under construction on the UWindsor campus.

The University of Windsor Alumni Association gave a major boost to campus transformation with a $750,000 donation, Thursday night.

The gift continues the association’s legacy of philanthropy, said president Mike Bates, who points to previous contributions to Alumni Hall and “the amazing Alumni Field which has brought so much recognition and glory to our beloved Lancers.”

Music Society president Jocelyn Putnam spoke on behalf of the students who will benefit from the new facilities. The School of Creative Arts will occupy the former Armouries building at the intersection of University Avenue and Freedom Way once renovations are completed.

“It means so much to the students in my department and across faculties that our alumni believe in investing in our future,” she said. “We look up to the Alumni Association not only for your professional accomplishments, but for your service, generosity and dedication to the University of Windsor.”

The donation will be made in annual installments over 10 years.
