December 17, 2018

The University of Saskatchewan has announced that it will convert a 30,000 square-foot facility in Prince Albert into a new education campus featuring classrooms, laboratories, research areas, a common room, and space for traditional Indigenous ceremonies. Patti McDougall, Vice-Provost of Teaching, Learning and Student Experience stated that the renovation is part of a long-term plan to expand and consolidate programming in Prince Albert. McDougall added that 47% of the Prince Albert campus’ education students are Indigenous. “There’s no reason why we couldn’t try to build on that so people in Prince Albert and points north can pursue the kind of degree that they want,” she added. paNOW adds that USask will also expand its dentistry program to the new campus. paNOW (SK)
