Aurora College eager for independent campus in Yellowknife

February 10, 2011

Aurora College staff are hoping the recent push to secure an independent campus in Yellowknife will be successful. The director of the Yellowknife/North Slave campus says the now 450 students have outgrown the current space at Northern United Place. The college has "reached the point where we're bursting at the seams," she says. Earlier this week, the MLA for Yellowknife Centre highlighted the need for Aurora College to have an independent campus in the Northwest Territories' capital. The territory's education minister says the government is considering a private-public partnership with a local Aboriginal group to get the institution a campus of its own in Yellowknife.
