Aurora transformation faces delays, college leadership cite lack of consistent funding

Aurora College’s transformation into a polytechnic university, which was to be completed by May 2025, has reportedly been delayed. NWT education minister Caitlin Cleveland said that the territory is “definitely committed” to the transformation and pointed to funding that has been provided to support the initiative. However, Aurora College Board of Governors Chair Joe Handley asserted that the college’s transformation has never been properly funded. Cabin Radio reports that the college has drawn on operational funding to continue the transformation work.
