AB considers creating boards to govern postsecondary institutions

January 14, 2021
The Government of Alberta is reportedly considering a proposal created by an international consultant to create boards that would govern multiple AB postsecondary institutions. This model would allow AB postsecondary institutions to better coordinate and cooperate, and would also allow improved changemaking around tuition and credit transfer. CBC reports that this is a model that Advanced Education Minister Demetrios Nicolaides is “examining closely,” but that it would be tailored to fit AB’s needs. “I don’t believe that a copy-paste approach is appropriate,” said Nicolaides. “I believe we need a made-in Alberta solution.” CBC (AB)
