Conference Board releases report on the benefits of Aurora transitioning to polytechnic


The Conference Board of Canada has released a report highlighting the benefits that a polytechnic university would offer to the Northwest Territories. The report examines how Aurora College’s transformation to a polytechnic university would enhance its contribution to the territory and ensure that NWT residents are able to access postsecondary education. “External reports such as this one support the work being done by Aurora College and the GNWT to increase and enhance academic opportunities for Northerners at all levels, in all communities,” said Aurora President Glenda Vardy Dell, who further noted the report’s support of the college’s growing Northern-based research.
