About me

John PowellCurrently, I serve as the Director of Web Communications in the Office of Public Affairs and Communications at the University of Windsor.  I am responsible for the strategic marketing direction of the web and social media communications as it pertains to the recruitment of prospective students, current students and active engagement of alumni.

My unique educational and experiential background consists of a Master’s degree from the University of Michigan in Information and Library Studies, six years as the chief web advocate at the University of Windsor as Director of Web Communications and 13-years as Webmaster, Database Manager and Trainer for the State of Michigan's public defender agency, State Appellate Defender Office.  This represents an ideal blend of education and experience which has afforded me opportunities to lead critical communication initiatives, build and develop cross-divisional teams while providing exceptional customer service exceeding expectations.
