Proposed university a “welcome and exciting” opportunity for innovation in BC: Johnson

May 1, 2019

A recently proposed postsecondary campus in the West Shore area of BC is a “welcome and exciting opportunity” to create an innovative university, writes Geoff Johnson. The author notes, however, that a school that simply replicates existing postsecondary offerings “would be a lost opportunity.” Johnson also states that flexible admissions processes, delivery models, and credit options—in addition to modern design and architecture—could help the proposed university stand above and beyond conventional notions of postsecondary education. The author concludes by encouraging those behind the development of the university to ensure that the campus “speak(s) to the future, not the past.” Times Colonist (BC)
