Indigenous-led adult education centre in Saanich rebrands as W̱SÁNEĆ College

An Indigenous-led adult education centre in Brentwood Bay that was formerly known as Saanich Adult Education Centre has unveiled its new name: W̱SÁNEĆ College. W̱SÁNEĆ College serves the four W̱SÁNEĆ nations in the Saanich Peninsula and offers Dogwood diplomas for adults who finish high school, college prep courses, and other courses and certificates that are accredited by Camosun College and the University of Victoria. W̱SÁNEĆ College Director Kendra Underwood said that the name change reflects the college’s ambitions and scope of its offerings. Over the next four years, W̱SÁNEĆ College will work toward creating its own registrar system, hiring its own faculty members, and increasing its administrative staff.
