Aurora President investigating ways to increase independence from Education department

June 30, 2020

Aurora College President Andy Bevan is examining ways that the college could increase its independence from the territory’s Education Department. Bevan, who is also associate deputy minister of post-secondary education renewal, explained that one of his highest priorities is establishing an arm’s-length board to govern the college. The decision follows the recent replacement of former Aurora President Thomas Weegar almost one year after his original appointment. The establishment of a board will require amendments to the Aurora College Act. CBC (NT)
