NWT replaces Aurora board with single administrator

June 8, 2017

The Government of the Northwest Territories has said that it will replace Aurora College's Board of Governors with a single administrator. CBC reports that the board will be replaced by Denny Rodgers, who currently serves as the general manager of the Inuvialuit Development Corporation and is the former mayor of Inuvik. In a press release, Minister of Education, Culture and Employment Alfred Moses said that bringing in Rodgers was the best way forward as the college prepares to undergo a comprehensive review. “The administrator will help to ensure stability and continuity, as Aurora College will be expected to maintain normal operations through the course of both the foundational review and the implementation of the review's recommendations,” said Moses, who noted that the move is intended to be temporary.
