RRC Polytech launches Pathway to Information Technology Programs for Indigenous students

June 23, 2022
Red River College Polytechnic has launched a new pathway program that will help Indigenous Manitobans pursue postsecondary training in the information technology sector. The Pathway to Information Technology Programs offering will focus on increasing students’ academic, personal, social, and financial readiness to pursue an RRC Polytech program by providing them with training and supports. The program will also reserve seats for Indigenous students to remove barriers such as wait lists. The program is supported by $450K from RBC. “With the move to remote and hybrid work and heavy reliance on technology, the world of IT operations is growing every day,” said RRC Polytech President Fred Meier.
