Review proposes Aurora College be converted to polytechnic

June 1, 2018

A long-awaited review of Aurora College includes the recommendation that the college become a polytechnic university in order to change the Northwest Territories’ vision for PSE. “I think that this a long time coming, and I'm really excited that this review actually has some recommendations — not only complaining about what we aren't doing right, but where we need to move forward,” said NWT Education Minister Caroline Cochrane. Yellowknife Centre MLA Julie Green, however, expressed concern to CBC about the scope of the recommendations. Aurora’s social work and teacher education program will remain suspended pending a further budget review, adds CBC, but all other programming will continue through the 2018-19 academic year. CBC
