Assiniboine Community College has received $2.2M from PrairiesCan’s Regional Innovation Ecosystems program for the establishment of a Centre for Creative Media at its Brandon campus. The centre will be used to support the digital industries in rural Manitoba. Remarking on rapidly changing needs of industry, ACC Director of Advancement and External Relations Derrick Turner told the Brandon Sun that the college has had to modernize its services and program offerings in response to demand from local industry. “More companies were coming to us to ask about what they could change to train more students,” said Turner, “so administration created new programs and expanded space to accommodate them.” Brandon Sun (Acct.
