Arctic College, Galaxy Broadband partner to expand education, training opportunities


Nunavut Arctic College and Galaxy Broadband have partnered to expand education and training opportunities for Nunavummiut. The collaboration will enable Arctic College to connect to the National Research and Education Network (NREN) and CANARIE using satellite technology from Galaxy Broadband. Through this connection, the college’s students, faculty, and researchers will have new access to research and education tools and services. “Our partnership with Galaxy Broadband is a substantial stride towards fulfilling our mission of offering culturally relevant programs of the highest national standard, while building internal capacity to operate such systems and services locally,” said Arctic College President Rebecca Mearns.
