Aurora College promises no students will be left behind with transition to polytechnic university

November 1, 2021
Aurora College says that its transition into a polytechnic university will not leave Northerners behind, reports CBC. Some MLAs are reportedly concerned that students graduating from schools in small communities have already been left behind by the system and will not be ready to pursue education at a polytechnic. Aurora College President Andy Bevan promised that the institution would prioritize “pathways that meet students where they are” so that all learners would have a chance to build their skills. Bevan also responded to concerns voiced by MLAs by affirming that he would be able to commit to more regional level programming. “We will work hard to get [more resources],” said Bevan. “We also think we can do better with the resources we have.” CBC (NWT)
