CBU will look to online, international education, says president

January 5, 2016

Cape Breton University President David Wheeler says that his university is looking at ways to educate students from around the world online as part of its plan to stay viable. CBU is considering setting up satellite campuses in other parts of the world, like the Canadian International College in Cairo, which is affiliated with CBU and the University of Ottawa. David Wheeler has also reportedly spoken with other Canadian universities about establishing a shared space in London, England. Online courses pose another possibility for the institution, says Wheeler, where the institution “could have hundreds of students … who never even see the campus.” CBC
