The Board of Governors of the University of Windsor has re-appointed Dr. Mary Jo Haddad to a second term as Chancellor.

Dr. Haddad was first installed as the University of Windsor’s eighth chancellor during spring 2019 Convocation ceremonies.

“We are grateful for Dr. Haddad’s continued commitment to the University of Windsor and the community it serves,” says Robert Gordon, University of Windsor President & Vice-Chancellor. “Among her many contributions over the past three years, Dr. Haddad’s prominent support of the University’s campus transformations and capital campaigns, including the $35 million Transforming Windsor Law project and the $73 million Toldo Lancer Centre, have had a significant impact on their successes. Our campus community owes her a debt of gratitude and we are fortunate that we can continue to count on her support and leadership for her second term.”

She served as President and CEO of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto from 2004 to her retirement in 2013, following a career that began in 1984 and included service as the hospital’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer.

“In the coming years I look forward to continuing my work to support the strategic goals of the University of Windsor through strong engagement with both internal and external communities,” says Dr. Haddad.

“It has also been my privilege to support student success and encourage student and faculty leadership through the Chancellor’s Leadership Series – an initiative I intend to continue as a financial champion, role model, and mentor.”

She says oversight of Convocation programs and the opportunity to preside over Convocation ceremonies will continue to be key components of her duties as Chancellor.

“Being present for University of Windsor students and their families as they are recognized and acknowledged for their hard work and dedication is definitely a highlight for me,” Dr. Haddad says.
