November 11, 2021
In a piece from Fort McMurray Today, Keyano College’s new President Jatinder “Jay” Notay reflects on the challenges of his position at Keyano. Notay discusses the way that Keyano must adapt by examining its strengths and weaknesses and creating a plan for the future. Notay also notes the necessity of repairing relationships with the community and rebuilding trust with staff after mismanagement and bullying by the last president. “We want to grow, we want to bring in new types of programming, we want to meet the labour market needs of our community and look five to 10 years down the road,” said Notay, who discussed adapting to address the decline in government funding. Notay also discussed plans to expand outreach to Indigenous students and recruiting efforts to international students. Fort McMurray Today (AB)
