NBCCD to become independent of NB community colleges

January 14, 2010

The New Brunswick government announced yesterday a new plan for the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design to expand and become a centre for artistic and creative excellence. Under the plan, the school will operate separately from NB's community colleges while remaining within the provincial government's PSE department. The new operating structure will help NBCCD improve its infrastructure and undertake applied research and international activities. A 5-year strategic plan is in the works to identify possible new program areas and improvements to existing programs. The province is also investing $500,000 for the college to upgrade its facility and acquire the adjacent Soldiers' Barracks. NB News Release | Daily Gleaner
