Aurora announces updates to critical milestone timeline


Aurora College has updated its critical milestone timeline for the Aurora College Transformation. Aurora has added three programs to the timeline—Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Social Work, and General Arts & Science— and plans to have year 1 of the programs implemented by Fall 2024. Other adjustments were made to the milestone dates in Phase 2 and new milestones were introduced, such as the establishment of the Indigenous Knowledge Holders Council and the implementation of the polytechnic university funding formula. “The introduction of university level general studies and the return of social work and education programs are an important step in Aurora College’s plans to increase access to post-secondary educational opportunities for NWT residents,” said Aurora President Glenda Vardy Dell.
