Cumberland, Parkland receive approval to move forward on merger


Cumberland College and Parkland College have received approval from the Government of Saskatchewan to move forward on their merger. The merger will enable the colleges to better serve their communities through shared resources, increased partnership opportunities, and new program development. The merger will take place on July 1, and will follow a phased approach that will include a rebranding process with a new name and logo. “By merging Cumberland College and Parkland College, we will be stronger together,” said Cumberland and Parkland College Board of Governors Co-Chair Ray Sass. “This will position our merged college to be more robust and provide the opportunity to offer more programming to recruit and retain more students.”
