Cambrian program cuts part of move to eliminate Media Studies, Culinary Arts

March 23, 2012

On Thursday, Cambrian College's board of governors gave the axe to 9 of the 11 programs up for suspension, sparing a pair of public relations programs. The VP academic says the suspension recommendations come from Cambrian's "strategic decision" to eliminate the Culinary Arts and Media Studies schools -- a move that will allow the institution to focus onĀ  programs more in line with the strategic plan. The VP says it was not an easy recommendation to make, but it was "unanimous from the deans." Financial pressures "forced (Cambrian) to say 'where can we get the best return on investment?'" With Media Studies being eliminated, the public relations programs will move to the business school, says president Sylvia Barnard. Sudbury Star
