Keyano plans for leaner, upgraded programming in response to AB downturn

July 7, 2017

Keyano College says that it is preparing for a future with a smaller student body enrolled in upgraded programs at a refurbished campus, reports Fort McMurray Today. The article notes that many of the college’s major building projects remain on hiatus due to the downturn in the Alberta economy. Instead, the campus is focusing on improving everything from washrooms to student housing and existing classroom infrastructure, and pursuing a renewed focus on rural outreach. “We’re not focused on expanding, but on ensuring the institution is in good shape,” said Keyano President Tracy Edwards. “Based on the downturn in the economy, we basically feel our current infrastructure will meet our needs with some upgrades.” Fort McMurray Today
