MHC forms action team to address international education audit

August 23, 2013

As part of an ongoing response to the provincial auditor’s July report that determined Medicine Hat College’s International Education Division was operating outside of the college’s control system, creating financial, legal, and reputational risk, officials at MHC are opening up “action team” meetings to the general public. The action team was formed to address the issues raised by the report, and includes administration, staff, board members, and others. VP Allen VandenBerg cautioned that they might not yet have all the answers, but that they’re making good progress on some fronts. MHC has hired a law firm to “investigate and expand” on the audit’s findings, and to check for legal issues around financial transactions and academic licensing. MHC has suspended admissions to the IED programs, but students currently enrolled will be able to continue. Medicine Hat News
