NIC Seeks Input

North Island College President seeks input on how NIC can better serve the community

  • May. 30, 2015 9:00 a.m.

Join North Island College President John Bowman for a Community Town Hall to discuss how NIC can better serve communities in the Mount Waddington region.

The Town Hall will be held Monday, June 1 at North Island Secondary School in Port McNeill, in conjunction with the Mount Waddington Learning Council meeting. Everyone is invited to attend and provide input on NIC’s draft Strategic Priorities and Goals.

The Learning Council is a group of education, industry, business, and community leaders who support adult, post-secondary and secondary training in the Mount Waddington region. The council ensures the regional communities’ needs are met through effective collaboration, integration, planning and resource sharing between organizations, institutions, and communities. “Student success and community–relevant programs are at the centre of all we do – we want to hear everyone’s thoughts on how we can best support the North Island’s educational needs over the next five years,” said Bowman.

The meeting will be held in the high school’s Multi-Purpose room, from 11:30 am to 1 pm.

Bowman hopes to hear from as many people and organizations as possible, so NIC can carefully consider all ideas before NIC’s Board of Governors meeting in late June.

NIC staff, administrators, and faculty created NIC Plan 2020 over six months, developing nine strategic priorities to shape how NIC delivers programs and services for the next five years. The plan will be instrumental in preparing the next generation of health care professionals, tradespeople, artists, social workers, business leaders, and university graduates in our communities.
