NBCC cuts 31 positions in restructuring

March 2, 2012

New Brunswick Community College is shedding 31 positions as the college network begins to centralize its administration. NBCC and its francophone counterpart have been operating independently of the provincial government for nearly 2 years and the anglophone network is in the middle of implementing a 5-year plan. NBCC president Marilyn Luscombe says the aim is to move toward one central college office rather than spread the administration over the 6 campuses. HR and registrar positions, IT, finance, and student services are all being centralized. Although 31 positions have been cut, no one has been laid off. The realignment will not change the level of education students receive in the classroom, Luscombe says. CBC
