NLC to close campuses, lay off staff

May 3, 2010

Faced with a $2.5-million shortfall, BC-based Northern Lights College has had to make "difficult decisions" in order to balance its 2010-11 budget. This includes closing campus operations in Atlin and Dease Lake. Staffing reductions will impact 26 employees, including non-unionized staff and unionized faculty and support staff. The college is also cancelling its Applied Business Technology Online program, reducing the number of deans from 4 to 3, and cutting out-of-region travel budgets for all departments.
