Kwantlen interested in establishing satellite campus in Delta

May 26, 2009

Speaking at a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon last Wednesday, Kwantlen Polytechnic University president David Atkinson said a satellite campus could be built in Ladner in the next 3 to 5 years. The university has had conversations with Delta regarding Paterson Park, a former harness track, and has a committee looking at various possibilities for the land's future. In the early 1990s, Kwantlen purchased the eastern half of the park from the Delta Agricultural Society, while the municipality later bought the rest. Atkinson said a continuing education centre could possibly be run at the site. Delta Optimist
