NVIT and UBC develop new master of education program

May 4, 2016

The Nicola Valley Institute of Technology has partnered with UBC to offer a master of education program at NVIT’s Merritt campus. The MEd in Educational Administration & Leadership will be delivered on a part-time basis to accommodate working student schedules. The program is designed for faculty and staff at NVIT and other Aboriginal postsecondary institutes. Indigenous and non-Indigenous faculty from UBC’s education faculty will teach the courses, of which some will be adapted from existing programs and some will be created specifically for the new program. The BC government is contributing $350 K to the initiative as part of the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Education and Training Policy Framework and Action Plan.
